Join us for the third annual Elm City Small Press Fest! Elm City Small Press Fest is a community event that focuses on independent publishing in the Maine region. This event highlights contemporary print and publishing culture while activating conversations around creative labor and commerce as viable artistic practices. The goal of the Fest is to inform attendees of contemporary creative publishing while stimulating and promoting creative economies in the area. Elm City Small Press Fest is organized by the Colby Libraries and Arts Office at Greene Block + Studios.
The Colby Museum will have a booth at the festival to share information about our publications and other printed materials. Come by for a free copy of Looking for Queer Possibility in the Museum, a self-guided visitor resource written by Margaret Middleton currently available on our campus location, a mini notebook from our exhibition Come Closer: Selections from the Collection, 1978–1994, and other goodies!
Elm City Small Press Fest is free and open to the public. The event takes place at Greene Block + Studios, which is an ADA-compliant building in downtown Waterville. All are welcome to attend. Please note, there may be some mature materials being presented. Shop zines, independent publications and art prints or stop by for workshops throughout the day.
