The Museum of Contemporary Art's zine fair is a fun event for creatives, artists and fans of art alike. A zine is a magazine or a fanzine, though unlike magazines you will find at a newsagent - zines are typically made in limited quantities and are self-published.
Inside the fair, you'll find part of the MCA taken over by quirky stalls selling their zines and art. Expect the experience to be like a market where all the stalls are art based and you can find work from a variety of different artists.
There are comedy zines, photography zines, writing-focused zines and almost anything you could imagine in zine form. Some stalls also opt to sell their other wares, including art prints, pins, badges and other self made products. Other things happening on the day include a workshop starting at 10.30am, a panel at 1.30pm and music performances at 11am and again at 3pm.
The event is well worth a visit if you have some free time on the weekend and you're a fan of art. Considering it's only on for one day - it's not to be missed.
Though the event is free to enter, the zines themselves aren't free - so make sure you bring some cash to help support some local artists.
