Play Indiana Jones for a day by competing at the second annual Raiders of the Lost Archives. Forget Hood to Coast, the Portland Marathon, all those exercises in physical endurance – this competition requires no athletic conditioning, and you can do it on pizza and coffee. It’s 24 hours of zine library madness. Competitors will scour boxes of uncounted zines stashed in our vaults. This is modern archaeology in the world of zines. Raiders will unearth issues that may have never been looked at since their doting editor last pulled them from the press — a year? Five years? Fifty years ago? For 24 hours straight, we’ll read, catalog, eat delicious food, drink coffee and be part of building the world’s largest collection of zines and small press comics. With over 20,000 uncatalogued zines dating back to the 1950s, you’re sure to find a treasure. You earn points, win merit badges, and even could take home a trophy. All for a good cause. The work is not difficult. Knowledge of the alphabet is helpful. Hands-on training in cataloguing will be provided. All it takes is you. Of course, you can come do it solo but a team will provide support in those times of alphabetical need. We are pretty sure we are the world's only 24-hour library live action role playing game. We'll even bet you our collection of 1980s librarian fanzines. All the information you need is at

You can speed-date a new zine every ten minutes or find a cozy corner to really get to know its mimeographed pages. You’re sure to find a treasure in our boxes of uncatalogued zines. Come to the IPRC on Feb 14th for No Zine Left Behind valentines day cataloguing extravaganza! We’ll have some chocolate & wine to set the mood, the rest is up to you. Invite your sweetie or come stag and meet your zinester match. How can you not like someone who volunteers their time to give lonely zines a home?

Guest artists are given a short residency to make a site-specific piece or curate a collaborative workshop, and visitors get to work alongside some of the most outstanding artists in independent comics. The festival is oriented toward creative process and idiosyncratic expression, leaving behind the festival model of comics as commerce. This is The Projects’ second year, and we can’t wait because last year’s festival was incredible! We were overwhelmed by the awesome work that was produced, the playful and incredibly talented people who participated, and, perhaps above all, the lasting connections made between people who worked and partied side-by-side for a long amazing weekend. This year promises to be just as marvelous with a packed program, a remodeled IPRC, and an earlier date so that we can bask in the summer sun! Plus, we have added a one-day bookfair at The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel, a dedicated night of Gridlords at the Hollywood Theater, a Free Spirit News playroom, and we have joined forces with Experimental Half Hour for two nights of trippy and spectacular performances! The Projects is partnered with a new breed of European comics festivals that put creativity and connection at the forefront: Škver in Mali Lošinj, Croatia; Novo Doba in Belgrade, Serbia; Crack! in Rome. These festivals create an intimate and non-commercial environment for artists from different cities, countries, and generations to work together and share ideas. The emphasis is to make art, experiment, and play, and to go a little wild together. Since we first experienced these sister festivals in the Balkans a few years ago, we knew we needed to start something like this in Portland. We'd also like to thank everyone who backed our Kickstarter fundraiser and all of our sponsors, without whom this festival would not be possible: Ace Hotel, Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters, Brass Tacks Sandwiches, Floating World Comics, Gallery Homeland, IPRC, Ninkasi Brewing, Regional Arts & Culture Council, and SCRAP. /// SCHEDULE /// Daytime Events at IPRC 8.22.

The IPRC is fully transitioning over to barcodes for our phenomenal zine library and we still have a thousand zines that need barcodes on them. This is a very mundane and easy task that is made fun by the company of good people and some cold beverages. Why? Because people who volunteer for local organizations live longer.* Because a frosty glass from a local microbrewery** over conversation is great way to wind down a Wednesday at work. Because you loved putting stickers on things as kids, why not recapture your youth? Because putting stickers on things is so easy, you can have exciting conversations. Because I would love to see your lovely faces helping at my favorite community non-profit. *Wisconsin Longitudinal Study shows evidence of this based on a random sample of 10,317 Wisconsin people from 1957-2010. **we will also have lemonade!
