The Other Worlds Zine Fair is an alternative to the MCA Zine Fair, consisting of over 65 zine makers and distributors and filling over 50 tables.

The MCA is sponsored by Transfield, a corporation that operates service contracts in the detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru. Over 65 zine makers and distributors from Australia have decided to boycott the MCA Zine Fair in 2014 and to provide an alternative event on the same day.

The organisers of the event believe an alternative fair will give zinesters an opportunity to show their protest while still enabling them to sell and swap their zines. It is also a demonstration that the zine community can organise their own event, on their own terms – ones that explicitly reject association with the detention industry.

It is also hoped that Other Worlds will provide a space in which to initiate discussions and raise awareness of how the system of mandatory detention manifests in our everyday lives – how we are all implicated in it, how else we can resist it, and how we can help end it.

In addition to the zinemakers there will also be a zine vending machine provided by the Canberra Zine Emporium, as well as the Counter-Revolution crew who will be selling vegan Mexican salad rolls (and a gluten free option).
