About Glasgow Zine Fest 2021: U Belong Glasgow: Remote

Hi friends and comrades!

U Belong Glasgow is a multilingual community platform that features BPOC and/or LGBT+ and/or disabled creatives, including poets, artists, musicians, singers, photographers, comedians and more. U Belong always features other organisations and creative platforms at the beginning of every event. There are 15 performance slots, and a different host in every event. This is a community that advocates for wellness, compassion, and solidarity, and you belong here.

This month the main theme is 'Remote' as in distant and isolated. References to the lockdown and Covid-19 pandemic are welcome. Reflections on the many delights of technology including Zoom and social media are encouraged too.

While everyone is welcome to attend, performance slots are reserved for BPOC, LGBTQ+ and disabled creatives only. If you would like to perform get in touch with U Belong Glasgow on Instagram or Facebook.

About the workshop leader:
Esraa Husain (pronouns indifferent) is a non-binary creative writer, academic and translator based in Scotland. Esraa is currently a PhD researcher at the University of Glasgow focusing on Black Scottish writing, migrancy, agency and postcolonial context. They perform their creative writings in spoken word and literary events across Scotland. Their poems, travel writings, essays and short stories have been featured in Gutter Magazine, The Bottle Imp, Kohl كحل Journal, and Causeway/Cabhsair Magazine amongst others.

Content warning: Each performer will give any content/trigger warnings before their performance starts.

About Pay-What-You-Can:
For Glasgow Zine Fest events, we use a Pay What You Can (PWYC) sliding scale ticketing system for all programming unless otherwise stated. You can choose to pay £0-12 for all events, workshops and talks.

You can read more about our ticketing system here: glasgowzinelibrary.com/ticketing.

Please be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it.

If you have booked a ticket and can no longer attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your space to others who wish to attend.

How to access our events:
We use Eventbrite for all of our ticketed events. After booking a ticket, you will be sent 3 reminder emails from Eventbrite leading up to the event. We will also send emails that share any resources that attendees will need access to, including any materials you will need in order to participate.

Unless otherwise stated, all events at Glasgow Zine Fest will take place using Zoom. Each email you receive will contain a button you can use to access the online event link. Please click this button for full information including any links and passwords.

If in doubt, you should log into your Eventbrite account using the same details you used to buy your ticket and access this information from there.

24 hours before the event begins, you will be sent a separate email with a direct link to the event as well a reminder of what materials you’ll need to bring.

Please email glasgowzinelibrary@gmail.com for any queries or issues.

Privacy:
When you purchase a ticket through Eventbrite, we will receive a limited amount of information about you (name, postcode and email address) We will never receive your payment methods from these channels. If your order includes a physical element, e.g a zine or a book or a materials pack, we will also receive the shipping address you choose to provide.

After an event, Glasgow Zine Library will email ticket holders a feedback form on behalf of Glasgow Zine Fest. Glasgow Zine Library will not use your information for any other purposes. Providing feedback is optional. Please see the privacy policy on our website for more details.
