amaZINE Zine Fair
A day trip to Wollongong's literary creations.
June 17, 2012
This may sound strange: Sydney is not the known centre of the universe and all inspiration. Beyond Surry Hills’ terraces and Chippo’s artist-run galleries lie whole other brave worlds of culture and creativity. Wollongong is known more for its steel than its DIY paper mill production. This June however, the amaZINE Zine Market is coming to town with a bevy of homebrewed literary creations, heady with the smell of fresh wet ink and Clag glue.
amaZINE is part of a fortnight-long festival, Unscene, dedicated to unveiling the Gong’s emerging and alternative art community. There’s a whole bunch of shows, parties and gigs in the wider program, but the local doco film night hosted by Music Farmers looks especially exciting for underground film buffs. They’re screening 90s film Steel Town Sound and the Occy Doco. Popcorn is provided but BYO drinks and a beanbag. Sounds like a cosy plan and the perfect brief excuse to escape Sydney.
