ZINE FEST! BLAAAHHHHH! WOOOAAH!

11/08/2010

FRIDAY THE 12

7pm at the Cream City Collectives:
“Riot Grrrl Relived; the spirit of grrrl zines, next generation”

A visual examination of current grrrl zines as influenced by the 90’s movement; 20 years later- taking the revolution and making it our own. The relevancy and still (ever) current need for angry-feminist-motion. Zines were the start and are the continuation of this wave of idea; Womanifesta.
(accompanied by a bake sale!!)
