HI! MY NAME IS MARYA-- I’m the founder of ABQ Zine Fest, (now in its 4th year) The Albuquerque Zine Library, and a co-founder/curator of The Tannex, a DIY performance clubhouse, in this outpost, in the high desert of New Mexico. I love my creative community, and I do a lot to support and nurture it. I’m asking for your support as I embark on a new project that expands my love for zines, self-publishing, and storytelling . . .


THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECT MISSION: to help diversify existing zine collections, or help establish new ones by presenting women/feminist focused, people of color influenced, gender-inclusive zines and comics to groups and collectives around the world.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECT will help me get to Sweden to present a pop-up zine library and free workshops at the TITWRENCH Stockholm Festival-- a women’s music festival. The fest was founded in Denver by Sarah Slater in 2008. TITWRENCH Stockholm is the first satellite of the original fest. After the event, I will donate 100-200 zines to a collective in the city. 



Here's a short video to show my appreciation for the support flowing in. THANKS SO MUCH!!

..............................................................................................................................................

YOUR GENEROUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT will:

  • Cover airfare to Stockholm.
  • Pay for simple materials to set up the zine library. 
If we surpass the goal of $2,500, this will allow me to take this pilot program and expand its reach to other collectives within the punk/zine community and beyond. Someday, I imagine this project being able to support other zinesters interested in delivering zines to groups and communities.

WHY STOCKHOLM?

To spite our perceptions of Sweden being a utopia, The country is more diverse than the media reflects. Along with the changes to this nation comes unrest. Last year, Stockholm experienced 5 days of rioting.  On March 8th of this year, an act of fascism in the form of a knife attack occurred on the night of International Women’s Day, injuring several women taking part in a Reclaim the Night demonstration. These are acts of violence, but they are also acts of ignorance. The Pamphleteer Project supports the independent voice by presenting diversity as a means of and solidarity with local communities striving for peace through mutual acceptance. 

UPDATE: Please read this blog post that explains WHY Stockholm is the pilot city for The Pamphleteer Project: http://bit.ly/TheRevolutionWillBeCataloged

WHY ZINES?

I know zines to be a form that can open pathways to self-expression when other avenues are blocked, guide people through difficult conversations, and fuel strong political actions in communities through the power of the independent voice. Most importantly, zines can connect us to the human intimacy of storytelling.

The earth, the bark, the tree, the ZINE. It can all mean something. Let's make our words and our actions meaningful! Please support this project!
