Staple! Independent Media Expo


  • Millenium Youth Complex (map)

STAPLE! Independent Media Expo is set to power-up this year’s event with a new location and more of the most creative minds in multimedia art for its annual event. The two-day, locally organized convention will be held September 9- 10 at the Millennium Youth Complex and will feature over 200 exhibitors, as well as several pre-event and post-expo after parties in the Austin area.

Founded in 2005, STAPLE! was created after Chris ‘Uncle Staple’ Nicholas saw a void in the field of indie media conventions and decided he wanted to create a place where artists could showcase their work outside of mainstream media, and where people could connect with, and inspire each other.

STAPLE! features indie comics, zines, art, crafts, games and welcomes big names and emerging artists together under one roof. Known as the premiere event for comic book fans and art lovers, this year’s family-friendly event offers something for everyone. For more information click here.
