Elm City Small Press Fest is a community event that focuses on independent publishing in the Maine region. The event highlights contemporary print and publishing culture while activating conversations around creative labor and commerce as viable artistic practices. The goal of the fest is to inform attendees of contemporary creative publishing while stimulating and promoting creative economies in the area.
On Friday, November 19, join us for the first hour of programming featuring a brief History of Zines presentation by Fannie Ouyang and a zine panel following. The Colby College Art Association will be programming live music for the remainder of the evening while satellite art studio tours will be happening around Waterville.
On Saturday, November 20, purchase zines, prints, independent publications, art books and more throughout the day from over 15 vendors. Workshop programming will be happening simultaneously.
All events are free and open to all.
Organized by Lunder Institute residential fellow Julia Arredondo and Colby College Visual & Interdisciplinary Arts Librarian Fannie Ouyang.
