The second Victoria Baths Fanzine Convention will explore how the virtual world is allowing global networks of zine makers to share their work and experiences, from zine libraries to collaborative publications.
Visitors will be able to browse/buy zines and take part in workshops to make their own zine or contribute to a collective Victoria Baths Fanzine. As well as talks and tours of the building, the Convention will screen Salford Zine Library's film Self Publishers of the World Take-over, which features self-publishers from all over the world talking about their work.
Also on display will be an exhibition of posters of inspirational women by Leeds-based zine maker Melanie Maddison. Caribou, a zine store in a vintage caravan, will be setting up shop outside the Baths.
Coinciding with Future Everything's Hand Made - entry price includes both events.
