Members of Kansas City Zine Con, Marc Saviano and Adam Davidson discuss an upcoming zine fest in KC this weekend. Kansas City Zine Con will feature more than 80 local and regional artists exhibiting zines, chapbooks, mini­comics and other hand­crafted works created in the spirit of do­-it­-yourself publishing. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 29, 2015 from 11 AM to 7 PM in the Valentine Room at the historic Uptown Theater on 3700 Broadway in Kansas City, MO. Highlighting Midwestern zine artists, the exhibition features hands ­on activities, lectures, panels, and films. Featured artists include zine makers Julia Eff, Jonas Cannon, Vice Versa Press, and locals Charlie Mylie, Luke Rocha, Chuck Munson, Hector Casanova and Kelsey Wroten. Lectures and panels will raise questions about the ethics and mechanics of student zine making, the cultural work that zines perform, and how zines act as counter public. Family friendly activities will showcase a variety of examples of how to bind, fold, and make unique zine covers. The LaBudde Special Collections will accept zine donations to be preserved for a local history archive.
