On December 1st, the first ever New York Tech Zine Fair (NYTZF) will provide a platform for 40+ exhibitors and DIY publishers to sell and circulate their work in a supportive community. Join us as we showcase the ways in which visual artists, writers, engineers, technologists, illustrators, and designers are using the space of zines and similar DIY creations to examine what we consider to be “technology” and offer a fresh perspective on digital culture.

Sign up for our mailing list to stay informed! Join us on November 30th for the VIP Reception and visit the fair on December 1st.
