HELP SUSTAIN OUR SLIDING-SCALE MODEL

Together we can keep L.A. Zine Fest alive!

Since the first event eight years ago, L.A. Zine Fest (LAZF) has always been volunteer-run. Funds are generated from a combination of table fees, merchandise sales, and year-round educational workshops. The co-organizers of LAZF have been able to sustain many of LAZF’s expenses, most of which goes towards securing a venue. However, this year, Helms Bakery in Culver City has donated our venue for the 2019 Fest!
 
We recognize this as a major opportunity to create a more sustainable event and are grateful to those who have reached out over the years to encourage L.A. Zine Fest to become more financially accessible.

Thus, we have put into action Sliding Scale table fees for LAZF 2019! 
 
Your donations to this campaign will help LAZF:
  • Rent 200+ tables and chairs for exhibitors ($2,200 for all tables and chairs, plus delivery)
     
  • Provide stipends to those who host Workshops and participate in Panel Discussions that take place during L.A. Zine Fest 2019 ($100 each)
     
  • Ensure that our venue meets fire safety standards via an on-site fire marshal, which is required by the city ($500)
     
  • Provide adequate, ADA-approved portable restrooms ($115 each)
     
  • Event insurance ($320)
     
  • Secure funding to make sliding scale possible again in 2020

We recognize that accessibility doesn’t just mean the option of lower tabling fees. As artists of various mediums ourselves, we want to continue to acknowledge the systemic and financial struggles of creatives, in particular artists of color, LGBTQIA+ experience, disability, and other marginalized identities. Each year, through listening and research, we strive for LAZF to be an environment of inclusivity, accommodation and accountability.  

Any amount you donate helps us reach our goal!

If you cannot contribute financially, we greatly appreciate sharing this campaign as much as you can. Lastly, we hope to see you at L.A. Zine Fest 2019 on Sunday May 26th!

Thank you!
Your 2019 LAZF Organizers,
Bianca, Daisy, Kenzo, Rhea & Roxy
