Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair – Things To Consider


HFZF Logistical Sign 2014So excited that Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair is less than a week away!

Here are some things to consider before coming to the fair:

  • Please skip putting on scents on Saturday. We’re trying to create a scent free space.  Some zinesters as well as SACHA volunteers and staff are allergic to scents and it would mean that they would not be able to parcicipate in the fair.
  • Please ask for consent before you take pictures.
  • There’s a quiet space on the third floor if you need to take a break.
  • Washrooms!
    There are physically accessible so-called “women’s” and “men’s” washrooms in the Senior’s Centre.
    Physically accessible washrooms that are not labelled “women’s” or “men’s” are on the first floor (near the café) and in the basement (turn right after getting off the elevators).
  • Supportive Listening
    Zine fairs can be stressful. If you need someone to talk to who will listen, there is a SACHA volunteer ready on the third floor. Folks of all genders can call SACHA’s 24 Hour Support Line as well – 905.525.4162.

Here’s the entire Safe(r) Spaces doc on SACHA’s site.
