Zine Fest Houston 2017

T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W

This year the annual Zine Fest Houston event will be at Lawndale
Art Center on Saturday, November 11 from 1-7 PM! Zine Fest Houston 2017
is open to the public free of charge and all ages are welcome. With 100+
vendors and over 1,000 attendees in 2016, the fest continues to grow
apace and 2017 promises to be its biggest year ever.

The theme of this year’s festival is T H E C Y B E R F U T U R E I S N O W !

This
theme is all about indulging our wildest and most ~aesthetically
robust~ fantasies about our cybernetic future! What does a C Y B E R F U
T U R E look like to you? For those of us who grew up in the 90s, or
spent much of those early consumer PC years immersed in a freshly
created digital universe, we imagined a lush world like the ones in our
coolest screensavers, or that amazing-looking open-world game slash
chatroom we would spend hours in. But what about the DANGERS of
cyberfuture? Will sentient AI rise up and smash the oppressive and
small-minded humans that engineered it? Will we never escape the
all-seeing-eye of targeted advertising until we have to pay-to-play for
ad-free vision?

What do you see when you look into your crystal
ball emoji? C Y B E R U T O P I A, or C Y B E R D Y S T O P I A ? The
future is yours to decide… Now!

Programming during the day
includes “Zine Distros in the Digital Age: Releasing Your Work via
Blockchain” presented by Conner Clifton, a lecture by Houston Anarchist
Black Cross, a live podcast recording with Veer Queer, an all inclusive
LGBTQ+ podcast based out of Houston, TX, and a screening of selected
zine clips as well as a teen zine workshop and animation workshop with
DIY Animation Club.

Zine
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.

About Maker Faire
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention,
creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where 
people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Makers range from 
tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all
ages and backgrounds. 

The original Make Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA, and in 2017 celebrated its eleventh
annual show with some 1100 makers and 130,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire 
New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees.
Kansas City, Detroit, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Silver Spring, Paris, Rome, Oslo, Trondheim, 
Tokyo, Newcastle (UK), and Shenzhen – and now Houston - are the home of larger-scale 
“featured” Maker Faires and over 120-community-driven, independently organized Mini
Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
