Zombie Queen’s ZINE SWAP 6 will take over Fowler’s Live and ACE Open, with a hoard of 60 seasoned and freshly squeezed zine-makers ready to bring you over to the dark side of the DIY art scene.

How does it work? Collect all that small change between the couch cushions, come grab yourself a beer and have a chat to with the zinesters. Like what you see? Most things are $10 or less. Getting tired? Head across the courtyard to ACE Open to chill out, make your own zine, or listen to the Creative Women of Colour panel. Feeling better? Head back to Fowler’s, see what you missed the first time around and dance the night away with an assembly of fabulous DJs.

This special Art After Dark event also features food available from the Nexus beer garden and a special ACE Open art book stall alongside all the DIY, photocopied goodness and you’ve come to expect from ZQ’s epic Zine Swaps.

Creative Women of Colour: a panel discussion hosted by Sose Fuamoli (The AU Review) featuring visual artist Aida Azin, writer Cher Tan and more to be announced. Fuamoli will lead a conversation between these inspiring women addressing the difficulties of being isolated in a supposedly inclusive area, as well as the activism and strength required to be a woman of colour in a creative field.
