This is an open festival, so bring what you’d like to find!!
In the meantime, we are organising some events for you to attend…
Here the list of confirmed events:
Zinesters and Self Publishers come and shout!!
You have the opportunity to use this space to present your publications to an audience, show the best spreads and the story behind them: at the end of your speech your goal is to sell your zine. Use your creativity to engage people, there are no rules.
Send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org

The official line up of “shouters” will soon be released.

PALTRINIERI from Discipula Editions + the special guest Sam Brown, the man behind the fantastic Library of Unwritten Books project (2002-2011)
6. TIPI BOOKSHOP TALK
We are delighted to announce a talk with the great book lover Andrea Copetti, creator and owner of Tipi Bookshop in Brussels (Belgium). In Andrea’s words: The Tipi Bookshop, will be more than just a Shop where you will find Books. My aim, my journey, by creating this project, is to open a space devoted to self-published photography books, small publishers, last but foremost a space where everyone can sit and learn from each other’s journey.
More info soon.
