Glasgow Zine Fest has been running since 2014, each year we have created a programme of events on a shoe string budget. We have always had a core belief that supporting artists and paying them for their time is fundamental to accessibility and widening participation. Each year, as we have grown bigger our overhead has increased to allow for our ideas to function in real life.
We are delighted to announce that we have been granted some much needed funding from Creative Scotland. This will give us an amazing opportunity to programme events that we were otherwise unable to afford, allow us to be an ethical host by paying union wages to all participants and to stay true to our d.i.y heritage without sacrificing anything important.
Over the next few months we will be announcing all of the exciting events that will make up Glasgow Zine Fest 2018. Stay tuned, it’s going to be the best year yet!
