Community Care Expectations

Community Care Expectations

Why does this document exist?

We want the IZLD event on July 21 to be a space which is welcoming, supportive, and inclusive.

We want to create a space which recognises and challenges the oppression and exploitation that some members of our community are harmed by, and some members of our community benefit from, and which strives to be free from oppressive attitudes, actions, behaviours and language.

IZLD2020

July 21st is International Zine Library Day July 21st is International Zine Library Day! As a way of celebrating, we’ve planned virtual and multimodal events that span the globe and create a way for zine librarians to meet up from around the world. Three programming blocks run from UTC 20:00 to UTC 04:00 with all kinds of events, from workshops to panels to readings (and, of course, more). and if you’re missing strolling past the tables at a zine fair, check out our two tabling sessions, where you can drop in and see what our tabling zinesters and librarians have on showcase. There are also two ways to participate asynchronously if you can’t make it to the live event- you can submit to our cookzine compilation or participate in a snail mail zine swap. Before you join us, please make sure to review our Community Care Expectations. Don’t forget to tag your social media with #IZLD2020. We hope to see you there!
