The Commonwealth’s aim is to bring together Toronto’s independent creative communities, with a focus on DIY, small press, and independent print and publishing. Through curated events, The Commonwealth will help local creatives join forces to promote the DIY and small press scene as a whole.
The Commonwealth’s first event will take place on Saturday, June 1st from 8pm-12am at 163 Sterling Rd. The event will coincide with the launch of Go Home Magazine’s third issue, and will include 25+ local independent vendors, from small press publishers to DIY individuals, who will be tabling their work. You’ll find small run books, zines, t-shirts, buttons, prints, photographs.
There will be cheap beer and tunes all night. Oh, and a bonfire. Make sure to come out and support The Commonwealth. After all, we’re all in this together.
Full vendor’s will be posted soon but Permanent Sleep is proud to be part of the first Common Wealth event and will be the first place to pick up some new zines from us and mark the return of Gemini. Come out and support DIY print culture, pick up some zines, party and enjoy the bon fire.
