The zine fair at DIY Cultures is spread across four venues in Rich Mix (London, UK) and hosts over 90 exhibitors ranging from artists, illustrators, comic book makers, activists and small-press publishers.
Table space is £11 for half a 6ft trestle table.
There will be a FREE communal table for people with one-off zines to sell. No need to apply for table space, just bring your zines to the DIY desk on the day! We also welcome applications from people based outside of London and internationally.
