The Program

The 2020 program features artists and publishers from Canada and abroad, guest curated by Vivian Sming and presented through digital platforms such as Zoom and YouTube.  

Photograph from VABF 2019, the foreground of the image has heads of multiple seated people listening to a panel discussion of four individuals, the focus of the image is on the fourth panelist who is using their hands to emphasize what they are speaking about as the other panelists look towards them. Two blank white boards are on the wall behind the panel.
Photograph from VABF 2019, perspective from over the shoulder of a person holding a zine. Their arm shows a dark denim jacket and some bracelets. The zine is white paper and black text that is not legible. The out of focus background has green carpet with white dots and few other zines (orange, pink, blue) lying on the ground.
