ABOUT CEBU ZINE FEST
An annual zine festival that gathers designers, artists, musicians, studios, presses, bookshops as well as independent publishers. Being our first year, we had no idea the kind of support we would receive — but with over 50 participants from the Philippines and abroad and we would like to thank everyone that has contributed and volunteered to make this a reality.
At #cebuzinefest, visitors can buy publications directly from publishers, artists, and designers who create handmade publications. Visitors can also enjoy various events including workshops, panel discussions, live music, great coffee and tasteful snacks.
The Cebu Zine Fest was brought to you by the tropicalfutures.institute whose aim is to continue to decentralize culture in order to champion other perspectives, stories, ideas, futures and voices.
WHAT IS A ZINE FEST?
A Zine Fest is an event where participants (artist, designers, studios, publishers, bookshops, companies) whose work involves various fields of art, design, technology, music and so on, set up a booth to present their own publications and other forms of work; where they can communicate and trade with the visitors and other participants directly. It is a rare and ideal opportunity for visitors and participants to find hundreds of beautiful, different, individual expressions in zine and book form amongst other forms. (note: also interchangeable with ‘art book fair’ or ‘zine fair’).
WHAT IS A ZINE?
