Canberra Zine Emporium

July 12, 2015

Canberra Zine Emporium is a collective of passionate cut n pasters who organise zine fairs, run workshops and other zine-related events in the Australian capital. In 2014, CZE launched the Canberra Zine Machine, a vending machine stocked with local zines that travelled to various art centres around the city and now resides in Nishi, New Acton. CZE co-founder Chiara Grassia will be repping Canberra at Auckland Zine Fest, with a stack of zines fresh from the 'Berra. Chiara has been making scruffy zines she was a teenager, including Rhetorical and They Want To Socialise You: Social Theory Explained Through Sleater-Kinney Lyrics. Her latest zine, I Wear Your Clothes Like Armour, is a collaboration with Vanessa Berry about fandom, friendship and Throwing Muses.
