We are excited to provide great panels at the PHX Zine Fest this year! The panel room is located inside and just north of the vendor floor. Please join us for these important conversations!
1:00pm - Disrupting through art
Isabel Garcia (Program Director), Yazmin Sagastume (Youth Poder), Jasmin Meza (Youth Poder), Daisy Cazares (Youth Poder), and Jennie Hernandez (Youth Organizer)
This panel will be about how Poder uses art to disrupt, dismantle and determine a liberated future for people of color in Arizona. We want to explore how our youth have expressed their story, inherited experience, and political message through art.
3:00pm - Inclusivity in comics
Russ Kazmierczak, Julie Fiveash, Emily Estril, and Zoe Sugg
Join a selection of local comic book artists as they discuss how creators have represented their culture (and counter-culture) in comics, from the creators of Superman in the 1930s to the indie self-publishers of today.
