Hey Sydney friends, get your arse out of bed and get on down to the Glebe Town Hall for the Other Worlds Zine Fair!


Other Worlds Zine Fair +, 2015
#otherworldszinefair

Other Worlds Zine Fair aims to create an alternative space for the exhange of art and ideas. It began in 2014 as a critical response to the MCA zine fair's connections to mandatory detention through their sponsorship by Transfield. The connections are ongoing and so is Other Worlds. This year the program will expand across three days to include heaps of zines, exhibitions, talks, workshops, and more.

Applications for stalls are now closed.

The zine fair will be held on Saturday 23 May, with other events and workshops taking place on Sunday.

If you would like to hold a workshop on Saturday or Sunday get in touch.

2015 Bar Runner Design Competition
Artists, painters and digital wizards, we are hosting our second Bar Runner design competition!

Whats a bar runner? The picture above in the banner. Its the extremely wide mat you find on a bar top that soaks up the excess beer that spills from your glass when youre trying to carry four drinks back to the table.

Youve got the entirety of May to get your design together. At the end of the month, well select a winner who will get 2 of their very own bar runners with their design as well as a sexy $150 bar tab.

Look out for an art show in mid June featuring a selection of the best entries!

Should you win, well be asking for permission to print a run of Bar Runners with your design to decorate our bar. Beyond that, the designs will permanently belong to you!

Entries close on the 31st of May. Submit as many designs as you like to info@scratchbar.com
