EVENT: Everything and Everyone: Art, Craft & Zine Market
Everything and Everyone is an art & craft market with a difference, taking place this Saturday, February 15th at St Kevin's Arcade on K'rd, from 4pm-7pm.
Organised bycartoonist Sam Orchard - author of the wonderful queer & transgender webcomic Rooster Tails, this eclectic market celebrates DIY arts, crafts, comics and self-publishing, with a particularly queer flavour.
Taking place during the Auckland Pride Festival, this is an event for people wanting to buy or sell art, craft and comics celebrating: creativity, queerness, sexuality, gender, feminism and everything in between. In short, it's an art and craft market for Everything and Everyone!

- Book Crossing: BookCrossing is a worldwide movement of making the world a library by releasing books into the wild…or giving them away at events such as this one.
