Yesterday was the absolute best, and was everything we had hoped it would be! Thank you to everyone who made this weekend possible! We’re feeling so much love for Salt Lake, and the incredible communities and people that came together for a really special day.
Thank you Amber for facilitating the zine making workshop on Friday (and Utah Humanities for making this incredible event happen!) Thanks to Alex, Amber, Erika, Marna, and Matthew for participating in our Friday night zine reading and panel discussion. Thanks Cody and the Rose Establishment for hosting us! It was perfect.
Our Saturday workshops and discussions were incredible– thanks Sara and Pillars of Salt Zine, Dakotah and We Are Here and Ella.
Thanks to Frantastic and the Sass, Early Successional and Strong Words for playing our after party, and to the incredible Alana and Adam at Diabolical Records for hosting us.
It also can’t be said enough, but thank you to the organizations and business who believed in this crazy fest. We truly could’t have done it without you Utah Arts Alliance, Utah Humanities, Dr Volts Comics and the Hand Drawn Photo Booth. Our venue was so perfect, and we were so lucky to be able to hold the first Grid Zine Fest in the Salt Lake Arts Academy.
We’re recouping now, but we’ll be back at it soon! Keep your eyes peeled for a Zine Club in May or June.
