Come hang out with the Chicago Zine Fest crew at Dimo’s Pizza in Wicker Park (1615 N Damen Ave) on January 12, 2016 from 6 pm – 10 pm for our annual pizza jam party! We’ll provide you with drawing materials, paper, and prompts, and you will create the artwork for a pizza-themed zine that we will put together! There will also be a live reading from some local zinesters and artists. Dimo’s is also providing $2 PBR drink specials and $1 from every slice of pizza sold will go to benefit CZF 2016! Come on out for our first fundraiser of the new year! (Facebook event here.)
We’re throwing a CZF post-fest pizza party! We’re looking for a few new faces to organize the next Chicago Zine Fest, so here’s your chance to learn how to become more involved with CZF 2015! Ever thought about organizing the zine fest? Not sure what organizing is all about? Come hang with us & find out!
We’ll be stuffing our bellies with pizza from Dimo’s, so please RSVP so we know how many to order. Don’t forget to mention if you’re into vegan pizza or dairy pizza! This is also a BYOZ event — bring copies of your zine to trade with other Chicago zinesters! Don’t write a zine? That’s okay too! We still want to see you there!
And hey! We know that getting involved with new things can often be intimidating & hard. But this is going to be a super chill, mega fun time, & maybe you’ll come out of it wanting to get on board with helping organize CZF 2015 (if not, that’s okay too!). So see you there? This event is at CHIPRC (Chicago Publisher’s Resource Center) — 858 N. Ashland Ave – on Monday, May 5th at 6:30pm. Join the Facebook event here!
