8-Ball Zine Fair SF Edition #5 - Sunday July 22nd - 11am-5pm - 1150 25th St - Parking Lot

8-Ball Community Inc. is an independent not-for-profit organization that — through free, open-access platforms and events — nurtures and supports a community of artists. We provide virtual and physical meeting sites for people of all ages, gender and backgrounds. Our mission is to generate collaborative and educational exchange through public access television and radio stations, an imprint, a self publishing fair, a public library, an internship program, a residency and series of workshops in art-related trades. 8-Ball Community operates free of elitism and is governed by its participants.

8-Ball Zine Fair started in 2012 at Grand Billiards in Brooklyn, NY. It usually happens in a pool hall, and has been reproduced in other cities around the world. The Drop Off table, placed at the centre of the fair, also represents the core of the community, un-selected and free, allows everyone to participate and show their work.8-Ball Zine Fair is free for exhibitors and guests and happens yearly in New York and San Francisco.

For this year's SF edition, we will be located in the parking lot (1150 25th St) of the SF Art Book Fair, put together by Minnesota Street Project, Colpa Press, and Park Life.

We have encouraged publishers to break the mold of the traditional zine/book fair and present their work out of the trunks of their cars or on picnic blankets. Everyone is welcome, we hope to see you there!
