Grrrl Zine Fair x The Agency of Visible Women


The Old Waterworks (TOW) has been working with the Agency of Visible Women (AoVW) and Grrrl Zine Fair to build a new library and research space. It houses a growing collection of books suggested by AoVW members, the Grrrl Zine Library—a collection of over 200 feminist and LGBTQIA* specific zines—and contemporary art books and published artist’s books. We hope it will be an invaluable resource for the local community, artists and students, providing access to material otherwise inaccessible or difficult to source.

Within this space Grrrl Zine Fair will be delivering a series of workshops and AoVW will be hosting their Open Tuesdays within the space as well as reading groups. Please keep an eye on our Events page and social media channels for updates.

The library is also home to a risograph printer where TOW provides a service for small-run DIY publications, workshops and low cost printing.
