Postby stephengoodall » Wed Jun 04, 2008 10:26 pm

ok, so i've contacted some folk about this...

analogue want a stall but need to get cover for the shop.
Sandy Meets and Malcy duff are interested and a couple of others. Magda also said that she spoke to some people at Prestonpandemonium who were interested.

no reply form Word Power, AK press, 1 oclock gun or Embassy- perhaps if people who know the people involved contact them they would be more interested....

i;m workign on a flyer that should be ready soon...

Still not sure what to do about tables tho- can anyone think of any free alternatives to hirinbg? also how many tables do we aim to get?

also need more cool ideas for events etc- M\lcy Duf wants to do an image sound thing maybe...

In the hall. I reckon there's space for it to happen alongside the zine fair. What do you think?

no doubt there will be space for other shop/nfp stuff but i have to confess i'd rather try to fill as much of the hall as possible with zine fair.

i think it would be better to focus on zines and related stuff . rather than diluting the event with other concerns .

Obviously it would be best if we could fill the whole place with zine stalls, but I think it would be better to have a full hall than a half empty hall.

Shall I tell Olivier he needs to pick another date? Or should I see how many stalls he realistically thinks he will fill?

We need to advertise the event, but also advertise that we're looking for people to hold stalls. We probably don't need a meeting for this, but we need someone to do it...

London - just one day.
Workshops - yes - London had some amazing ones listed.
Gig - would be good - I see Jeffrey Lewis has a big gap in his tour schedule.

AK Press are in. They are having a think on other folks who might want in.

Tried Elaine at Word Power. Should be in touch with her tomorrow.

Nine has a zine called 'If destroyed still true' and would like a stall. Is this cool? I think London was distros only, but we can open it up a little yes/no?

My friend Lucy has got boxes of stuff she has been trying to sort out for ages. She's aiming for the event and would like a stall.

Another friend Joey has a small distro. Still trying to get in touch with him.

I printed off 20 A4 posters and left a few in the cabinet in the action room.

Do we still have the contact for the Irish folk who came two festivals ago?
They put together really sweet headphone audio tourguides for two people, had them off in separate ways and converge with different narratives.
Very charming and romantic it was.
If we don't have it - we should work on our own.

Are you going to email all individually Dai? I haven't been in touch with any of them. Joey knows the London organisers and may have contacts for peoples who couldn't be included because of space...if there were any?

Magda mentioned CrimeThinc today. Harry used to be part of the collective and might be able to be convinced to get some stuff sent over and work a stall. I'll get in touch with him.

Can we add something to the poster that let's people know there will be a gig Saturday night? Need to get it up on the website asap. Web details should also be on the poster.

Also, should we try and sort out some crash space?

ah, missed that post about about getting the web details on the poster. have already stuck some out and about.

getting a band and doing the workshops sounds ideal- bookbindin sounds like a good plan.

Films: i have a copy of comic book confidential, mentioned by dai above and also American Splendour which is a god movie. There is also The Psychedelic Mindscape of Alan Moore which i haven't seen but might be good.


Right so might be a good idea to meet up to discuss ideas fo r events- friday evening has been suggested, which is good for me, any time preferences?

6pm sounds good.

Facebook group is up so join and invite!

Also spoke to Steve at Recycle Scotland- the tables are 4 foot by 2 foot and the legs screw off to allow for transport. They are kept in an industrial estate in livingston so we nee dto get a van sorted for nearer the time and arrange to pick them up, but will be free of charge.
