We are proud to announce Zineland Terrace, the first ever TCAF Zine Fair!

Every year, some of the world’s most exciting comic artists gather for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. This year, we are delighted to expand the scope of the festival’s exhibitor programming to include a brand new, truly unique space for zine creators, readers, and well, everyone!

TCAF’s Zineland Terrace will happen at The Cumberland Terrace (2 Bloor St W) on May 12-13, 2018, from 11am to 5pm each day. The event will run concurrently with the main 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.

We are inviting any zine creator to apply to exhibit!

You do not need to make comics, or have exhibited at TCAF before. We are taking a wide and supportive approach to what counts as a zine, and we want to showcase the broad and diverse spectrum of people working in the medium. To this end, we are especially encouraging local, emerging, and marginalized creators to apply to exhibit at TCAF’s Zineland Terrace.

Applications to exhibit are open from now until April 27th through this form: https://goo.gl/forms/126uqCzXpLK6cqmv2

There is no fee to apply. If you are accepted to exhibit, tables will cost $75 (+HST, totalling $84.75 CAD). The exhibitor fee goes directly to covering costs for the venue for the weekend, and covers both days. If the fee is a barrier for your to participate or apply, please send us an email at zinelandterrace@gmail.com

We realize the dates are a little tight, so we’ll be releasing application results on a rolling basis. Expect to hear from us within 10 days of applying!

We will be announcing some exciting details of programming and workshops in the next few weeks! Please reach out with any questions or concerns to zinelandterrace@gmail.com.

Long live zines!
