Pioneer Valley Zine Fest and Ladyfest Rises Again: April 26-28 2013

About Pioneer Valley Zine Fest and Ladyfest Easthampton: 

A three day music and arts festival, with hands-on workshops, vendors, and performances at Flywheel arts collective and Food For Thought Books, our mission is to celebrate and support all musicians and artists in the DIY underground, specifically whose identity falls outside of the dominant cultural mainstream, including but not limited to women. We strive to to bring accessibility to DIY zine-making as well as supporting radical independent publishing and hope to bring writers, activists, artists and community members together through sharing, connecting and collaborating.

Zines, which are written in a variety of formats, strive to set importance on bringing literature, art, and politics out of a profit oriented industry. This lets information that is often exclusive to academic or privileged spheres available to a more general public. Zines offer a founding basis of Do-it-yourself “DIY” communities and encourage anyone to write or read theory, art, personal journals, or anything else without the need of a publisher.

About Flywheel Arts Collective:

Founded in 1999 by two local women, the Flywheel Arts collective is an all-ages, all-volunteer, community-run space in Easthampton, Massachusetts.Flywheel, a collectively run, not-for-profit space, aims to build community and give artists of all types the opportunity to craft, practice, and perform their work in an environment where creativity is valued over profit. Volunteer-run and governed by consensus, Flywheel believes that art and information should be equally accessible and affordable to all people. Flywheel is a volunteer collective of artists, musicians, parents, videographers, community members and other good people dedicated to running a space that is created and controlled by the people who use it. Anyone can participate in Flywheel's decisions by joining the collective. In the collective, every member has an equal vote.

About Food For Thought Books Collective:
Food For Thought Books Collective is an independent, not-for-profit, workers' collective project dedicated to the dissemination of radical & progressive media in all its various forms. Food For Thought Books Collective stands in solidarity with all struggles for justice, peace and equality and allies itself with all peoples resisting violence and oppression. We believe in media as a means toward the realization of social justice and liberation. We seek to provide a space where voices, people and ideas silenced and ignored by the mainstream media are given room to be heard, to be seen, to be supported and to be realized. We see ourselves as a hub for radical and progressive exchange and aim to provide a physical space in the community that is grounded in liberation for all.
