‘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.’
