The Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair celebrates and creates spaces for marginalized groups to have discussions about feminism through do-it-yourself publishing.|
We're aiming to create an accessible event that gives a platform to those often under-represented in zine culture.
The primary items at tables should be zines. Books, crafts, art, etc. should be kept to a minimum.
Half a table (2.5 feet) is $10. Free tables are available! The $10 helps to cover the costs of organizing HFZF. Any extra money raised goes to SACHA programs.
Contact email@example.com either if you would like a free table OR if you cannot pay the tabling fee online through Brown Paper Tickets.
What's a Zine?
A zine is a self-published book, magazine, or comic. Anyone can make a zine - using low-cost methods like collage and photocopying - to create a space for their words, ideas, images, and more. Not having to rely on traditional publishing allows for non-mainstream voices to be heard!

What do we mean by feminism?
Feminism can mean lots of different things to different people. For us it includes:
- creating an equitable world for all
- questioning the ways that we were taught to 'man up' or 'act like a lady'
- intersectionality: acknowledging that folks have lots of different identities and things going on in their lives that make them who they are.
- resisting all forms of oppression - like sexism, poverty, racism, ableism, colonialism, transphobia, heterosexism, sizeism, and lots of other oppressions!
- demanding safety at home, work, school, and play
- supporting survivors of violence
- seeing the systemic root causes of injustice
If you have any questions about whether your work might fit at the HFZF, you can email or call Crickett for more information firstname.lastname@example.org or 905.525.4573.
"We need to build maps describing the many ways we have worked, not just monuments to the past. Lets show each other the truth about how we fought." -- Kim Katrin Milan
We're really excited about the organizers who came before us! Our 'About Us' is inspired by Toronto Queer Zine Fair, Feminist Zine Fest NYC, Philly Feminist Zine Fest.
