Fest Houston is a local volunteer-run organization and annual event
dedicated to promoting zines, comics, and other forms of small press,
alternative, underground DIY media and art. It is also a grassroots
attempt to build the local zine, DIY, and alternative media scenes and
form networks with media creators in other areas. ZFH is committed to
providing accessible space to celebrate self-publishing and small
presses, encouraging the distribution of independent art, writing, and
media primarily through the medium of zines. The goal of the event is
for attendees to discover new zines and be inspired to create their own
DIY art and media projects.

These sessions are an opportunity to fall deeper in love with your body, ground yourself in the Third Ward and look forward to the more compassionate journey that awaits you.
