Corazón de Melón is an event for the community to come together to celebrate the power of self publishing, literacy, and spoken word!
This is how it will work:
1.) Any poc zine makers/book sellers can bring ONE backpack full of their merchandise to come vend. No sign up needed. No large set ups. If you bring a table be expected to share with others. No zines promoting racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, any of the ugly isms etc..just don't be a shitty human. Come early for a spot. First come first serve.
2.)At 6pm the zine/book marketplace will open as well as a free buffet for the community. This will be a community pot luck for our low/no income gente so bring a dish if your financially able to for those that can't. I will be making a go fund me as well to recieve donations.We will feed as many mouths possible. Any one can come eat. The feast will end at 8. Our open mic will be from 8-10. Sign up is at 7:30.
