London Digest: Alternative Press Festival. July 29-August 2 2009
Hurray for the small press ! (and i'm not talking about extra short reporters.) The "alternativepress.org.uk" will be celebrating zines, comics and other types of alternative press in a five-day bonanza of zine-making, zine-selling and zine-speaking.
Check out these events:
The Miller, 96 Snowfields Rd, London Bridge, SE1 3SS
Mingle with visitors and exibitors, and create a "zine of the day". If you get bored of being creative, hang around for the films and talks. I'll definitely stay for the evening highlight - Resonance FM's Radio Orchestra will be performing a piece that will be interpreted and illustrated by artists using overhead projectors.
Alternative Press Fair
St. Aloysius Social Club, 20 Phoenix Rd, London NW1 1TA
A massive book fair of over 80 exibitors. Get your grubby paws on their treasure troves of radical literature, comics and poetry.
