Bizoo Comes to Town - Mission: Create, Collaborate and Connect
To celebrate the launch of Bizoo’s final release: The Best, The Worst and the Trash That Never Made It'. Bizoo, Smells Like Zines and CrimInAll Records invites you to a free suite of events, workshops, music and launch of a new Cairns zine. Bizoo’s final release is a free retrospective, carbon neutral book that covers the highlights and lowlights of the music and arts zine, Bizoo. Bizoo grew up in Toowoomba, that’s right; it is home to more than just the Carnival of Flowers. Over its twenty-five issues, Bizoo rounded up a tribe of 50 contributors from across the country and became an underground platform that supported the arts nationally.
Unsure what a Bizoo is? Well the retrospective book will be available throughout Cairns three weeks prior to the crew from Bizoo arriving (locations include the 2011 Tastey Street Art Fest). This will provide an opportunity to check out the inspiring tale of how a group of young people put Toowoomba on the map and how local artists and musicians grew via the publication. With thanks to Mofo and Crate59, the Bizoo crew will celebrate and release the book with two workshops and a gig meet up and documentary screening.
