    This event has passed Get Tickets

    Event description

    From localised subcultures to complex global outlooks, the Surf Coast’s independent publishing scene is an extraordinary mashup of art, place, surf, community, analogue, digital, and everything in between. In a world where mainstream media is increasingly concentrated and corporatised, a thriving independent publishing sector is more important than ever. This panel discussion explores the big questions around the future of independent publishing — curation, culture, content, marketing, distribution and business models — and how we can, collectively, make the space for it to thrive.
