Zinefest Pop Up at Silo Park

The first ever Zinefest pop up at Silo Park was fun, albeit the rain! Thanks to all the stall holders who participated. We would like to also say a huge thank you to Beth, who looks after the Audio Foundation zine collection, Hamish and Angeline from Auckland Libraries for being part of the pop up as well!

Zinefest Committee is Recruiting!
