Zineland Terrace is a unique space for zine creators, readers, and well, everyone! Last year’s fair was a huge success, and we are excited to continue to offer a different kind of space for self-publishing during TCAF weekend.

Zineland Terrace will occur at The Cumberland Terrace (2 Bloor St W) on May 11-12, 2019. The event will run concurrently with the TCAF festival floor directly across the street at the Toronto Reference Library, but will focus on creators using self publishing, DIY, and zine culture to forge new and critical narratives and communities.

Programming: 

Saturday May 11th

12pm-2:30pm • Drop-in Zine Jam

Good ol’ unstructured, exploratory zine making! We’ll provide the scissors, glue, and other supplies, and you bring your creativity and playfulness.

3pm – 5pm • The Zero Dollar Store

The Zero Dollar Store invites the public to participate in alternative ways to “purchase” a zine. Acceptable “currency” includes but is not limited to: playing rock-paper-scissors, learning a short ukulele song, gaming with us on NDSs, or drawing us a mythical animal. Each activity gets you barter access to our community collection of small art multiples – zines, stickers, buttons, and more! The Zero Dollar Store aims to reject repressive and isolating systems of capitalism, and honour active participation, presence, play, interaction, and community.

All ages welcome, no prior experience in any activities required. We are accepting zine donations to stock the store! Please bring them by or email outreach@paperhousestudio.com  to coordinate.

Sunday May 12th

12pm-2:30pm • Drop-in Zine Jam

Good ol’ unstructured, exploratory zine making! We’ll provide the scissors, glue, and other supplies, and you bring your creativity and playfulness.

3pm – 5pm • Break and Make Zines

Break and Make Zines takes collected objects – found or inherited, broken or whole, physical or imaginary, present or lost – and creates zines that explores memory, cultural heritage, ancestry, mending, restoring, and personal narratives. We invite the public to bring in a significant object* and re-make it using collage, drawing, scanning, and printing into a zine. We aim to generate meaningful and wholesome discourse on identity while utilizing the zine-making process as a healing and creative activity.

*We will have available objects at the table for people to play around with, but do encourage participants to bring their own, or use something of significance that they already have on them. All ages are welcome, in particular we invite families (born and/or chosen) to collaborate and create a family heritage zine.
