1P/Halley, or: What Goes Around Comes Around - Zine/Poster Launch

  • Thousand Pound Bend 361 Lonsdale St Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

Join us for the launch of a zine and the creation of a time capsule, as a part of the 2015 Emerging Writers' Festival Late Night Literary Magazines program.

If you missed out on the launch event, you can purchase a copy of the zine here:

1P/Halley is the only comet you have a pretty good chance of seeing in your lifetime. Chart Collective explores the relationship between time, humanity, the earth and the sky by publishing a zine folding out to A2 poster, each work set on one of the next four nights Halley’s Comet returns. What will Melbourne look like in 2061, in 2135, in 2209 and in 2284, when the comet burns across the sky? The zine comprises illustration by Steph Hughes and Caroline Anderson, and written work by Hannah Donnelly and Emma Marie Jones which will be read on the night.

We will also be accepting contributions to a time capsule destined to be opened in 2061 on the night that 1P/Halley next visits. Make your own written or illustrated predictions for what that night will be like, and let's see how close we are.

"... nothing in the world, I thought to myself, is as old as what was futuristic in the past".
