CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Canzine Call For Art Room Entries and Table Registrations (deadline: Aug 29th)

Canzine call for art room entries and table registrations, October 26th @ Gladstone Hotel

Deadline: August 29, 2008

For the past two years Toronto's Canzine, Canada's largest zine fair and festival of alternative culture, has included artists who take over the hotel rooms on the second floor of the Gladstone with interactive installations. Forests, musicians, funerals and crocheted boobs are just a few of the things that have filled our rooms in the past. This year Broken Pencil will continue the tradition and are currently looking for artists who would like to rent a room to entertain the masses.

Interested parties should send a pitch detailing what you plan to do and how you'll pull it off in a hotel room to Broken Pencil editor, Lindsay Gibb, at with "Canzine Art Room Proposal" as the subject line.

Art rooms are $75. This year's theme is comedy, and while it's not imperative that the rooms keep with the theme, we definitely encourage using the space for hilarity. August 29th is the deadline for submissions.

We're also accepting table registrations from anyone who would like to sell their wares at Canzine. Tables are $10. To register please visit
