Les VoiZines presents:
Zine Happening VI (take 2)

Zine Happening VI (take 2)

Les VoiZines is happy and relieved to announce that Zine Happening VI (take 2) will still be. taking place April 24th and 25th from 11h to 18h at Kunsthal! Of course under the circumstances it won't be the raucous and intimate happening it once was but we are hopeful that it will continue to be a place where community is created and artists of all levels can network, have fun and learn from each other. It is our aim to connect the wider community to artists and small presses so that they can find support and inspire others to create their own zines and feel encouraged to make art on their own terms.

Unfortunately due to the chaos of COVID-19 Les VoiZines wasn't able to incorporate our international artist pals into the physical event but we will be promoting their work and links online. Please stay tuned and check them out!

This year we present a local edition of our tried and true Zine Happening. We will have a pop up. bookshop where people can purchase and peruse zines made right here in Belgium (after hands are sanitized of course!). We will also have expos featuring three contemporary, local artists: Bahati Simoens, Indré Svirplyté and Alexander Robyn. Last but not least we are. launching our first ever Small Press BIG Award this year! We know it isn't the Zine Happening of yesteryear but we are thankful to present some version of it. We would love to see you all there!

Naturally masks will be required throughout your visit. We appreciate your help in making this year's Zine Happening safe and comfortable for everyone.

See you there!
