The Stockton Zine Fest will be an all ages, free, and open to the public showcase of DIY/alternative press zines as well as other artwork for display, trade, or purchase on Saturday, April 19, 2019 from 5-10 p.m. It will feature 15-20 participants and DJ Britney Marquez playing some jams. The event was funded by the California Arts Council.
Stockton Zine Fest participants are required to bring at least 2 zines and are encouraged to bring other non-zine items for display, trade, and/or purchase. Zines come in all shapes and sizes and can be represented as pamphlets or bound books. Content of zines may range from photography, poetry, fan-zines, travel, sci-fi, pulp fiction, fashion, to feminism, anti-capitalist, self-improvement, queer culture, POC empowerment, etc. Examples of non-zine items are stickers, pins, patches, shirts, prints, or other suitable artworks. All materials and participants however must follow the “Safe Space Standards” (see below).

Stockton Zine Fest 2018 is a safe space, which means that it is intended to be a welcoming, engaging, and supportive environment free of oppressive actions, behaviors, and language. Participants and attendees are asked to consider how their language and behavior impact others in attendance. This policy extends to materials presented by Zine Fest participants.
We will not tolerate racism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and all other forms of discrimination, theft of money or property, or causing participants or attendees to feel distressed or unsafe.
The following guidelines will help Stockton Zine Fest be a safe space:
Respect people’s physical and emotional boundaries. (Ex: ask before taking a photo)
Respect people’s opinions, beliefs, differing states of being, and differing points of view.
Be responsible for your actions, and be aware that they may have an effect on others regardless of original intent.
Should an issue arise with a participant or attendee before or during the fest, the Placeholder Magazine & Tuleburg Press team will be available to hear these concerns and find a solution that is in the best interests of the community and the event being a safe space. The Placeholder Magazine & Tuleburg Press team reserves the right to ask any attendees who are violating the safe space policy to address their unsafe behavior or language, or leave the event.
