Put Some Spring In Your Step
Octapod’s famous “nationally significant” collection of over 2,000 zines is back on the shelves in the new premises at 401 Hunter St and will soon be ready for perusal by enthusiastic zine-perusers such as yourself. Former resident zine librarian Frances Howe has been working on the library this week and we expect to be able to open it up in September.
The zine library started with a call-out for zines as part of the This is Not Art festival in 1998, when the New Pollution anthology was created. Since then the library’s growth has been organic and sporadic.
Community Cultural Development
Octapod also maintains a resource library of books, journals and online resources to support community cultural development efforts. We intend to have this available for you in September, also.
Meeting Space for Members
Octapod’s new pad at 401 Hunter St includes space for members to book for meetings. The magic month of September again. Contact us on 4927 0470 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to use the space, or go to http://octapod.org/getinvolved to find out about joining.
Mural Designs at Figtree
The mural painting project at Figtree is a community project that Octapod was delighted to be able to support through its Seedpod grants scheme. This Sunday the artist will bring along possible designs for input from the community.
