Riverside Print Fest is back and I am so happy to see it! Zinesters will have their wares on display, and there will be workshops and readings for you to attend throughout the day. Don’t forget to stop by the zine library, too! Exhibitors include a lot of titles that are new (and exciting) to me, plus former LAZF tablers like She’s Not A Morning Person, Double Fur Press, Pimpkillah, and Seite Books.
BONUS: just after the Fest, there will be a screening of DIY: We’re Doin’ It, a short documentary about women in DIY culture–artists, zinesters, musicians–that includes two amazing ladies from Zineworks, Annie Knight and Angela Asbell. Can’t wait to check this one out!
DIY: We’re Doin’ It is a short documentary about women in the DIY culture who organize and create for their communities. This film features interviews with artists, musicians, zinesters, and a filmmaker. Produced by Maria A. Yanez, Annie Knight, and Rhianne Bergado. Directed by Maria A. Yanez.

If you love skateboarding and you love Redlands and would like to see another skatepark added to the list of places to skate in the IE, I highly recommend you check out redlandsskatepark.com it has updates and a calendar to keep track of pertinent meetings and info. We’re still in the very early stages of discussing and planning, but we have been told directly by members of the Parks and Rev Advisory Committee (PRAC) that the most important thing right now is for everyone to get involved, come to City meetings, and show our continued support for the project. They are definitely interested in the idea of a skatepark, they just need to see participation from us, the skateboarding community. The next meeting is this thursday May 16, check the site for time and location. This is a pretty real possibility, so get involved and lets make it a reality. #askateparkinredlands #skateordie #skateanddestroy
