Save the Date: March 25, 2017!



Madison Print & Resist 2017 is a day-long festival of political print media, zines, experimental publications, and workshops related to the world of art, do-it-yourself culture, and political action. We’re looking for subversively creative print/media artists including zine makers, printers, poster-makers, and other self-published artists and writers to share their work with the Madison area community.

The event will be held on Saturday, March 25th from 11am to 4:30 pm on the light-filled third floor of the Madison Public Library in downtown Madison, WI.

This year we will have the following table options:


  • Full tables will be available for collectives/distributors representing more than 10 people or publications.
  • Half a table will be available to individuals displaying more than 6 (different) zines/posters.
  • For people with smaller numbers of zines and/or posters, please apply for space at the community tables. The space at the community tables will be allocated by the number of publications that you have to display.
  • Two tables for collectives representing more than 20 people.


Tables are 5′-6′ long by 3′ deep.  Also, please note that nearly all tables will have wall space directly behind them for displaying posters (only with blue or green painters tape). A limited number or spaces will be available if you require pins/nails to secure your work. Please remember to check the appropriate boxes on the application to indicate your needs.

Please let us know if you are able/planning  to bring your own table or other display furniture.

There is neither a table fee nor an application fee. However, we will ask for 5% commission on any sales you may conduct at the event, with all proceeds going toward future event costs.

While the organizers will make every effort to satisfy each participant’s particular needs, they reserve rights to make all final decisions about table and display arrangements, in consultation with Library staff.




  • All applicants agree to be included in promotions and publicity for the event. We will be highlighting select exhibitors via the facebook page and website ahead of the event.
  • Please complete the following application form in full (scan down):

  • Email 1-3 images of your zines/prints/projects to Include your name and the title of the project in the subject line, so that we can connect them to your application.
  • Deadline for application is February 15th.
  • We will notify applicants of status by March 1st.

2015 Workshop Schedule!

Feast on the menu of workshops and talks at this year’s Print and Resist!

11:30 am – 12 pm: UW Comics Club, “Imaginary Friends: Making Collaborative Comics” with Captain Santa

You can make a character out of anything, just ask Pixar. In “Imaginary Friends,” we’ll do some fun drawing games you can use anywhere, whether your characters are high-def or a circle with a smiley face.

1 – 1:30 pm: Nicolas Lampert, Climate Prints Project

Milwaukee-based interdisciplinary artist Nicolas Lampert will be talking about Climate Prints, a website/activist infrastructure project that shares downloadable graphics on Climate Justice and puts this work directly into movements.

1:45 – 2:45 pm: John Porcellino, “A Personal History of the Early Zine Days”

Comics artist John Porcellino, creator of King-Cat Comics (running since 1989!) and author of The Hospital Suite (Drawn & Quarterly, 2014) will be showing some of his early work and talking about discovering zines and self-publishing—how he got into zine-making in the first place.

3 – 3:30 pm: Joe Brusky, Lane Hall, and Lisa Moline, Overpass Light Brigade

The Overpass Light Brigade was forged in the activist climate of the Wisconsin Uprising, a loose and inclusive affiliation of people dedicated to the power of peaceful protest and artful activism. Their messages shine at night over highways and other public spaces. In this talk, they will be discussing OLB’s actions and methods, showing images and videos, and taking questions from the audience.

4 – 4:30:  UW Comics Club, “Great Works of Literature with Cartoons” with Captain Santa

In this workshop, we will start by recalling books, stories, and cartoon characters we remember from youth. Then, by picking from the lists at random, we will create illustrations depicting a scene from a book or story with a cartoon character!

Plus all-day book-making and zine-making workshops!
