Cultivated in the coal mine lands of Northeast Pennsylvania, The Scranton DIY Punk Collective brings the local DIY subculture to the forefront. Two hours from New York City and Philadelphia in either direction, Scranton is a town of artistic miscreants, urban makers, music collectors, metalheads, hippies, and punx of all breeds. Artists, makers, zinesters, and collectors showcase their handmade works and wares at our events.
We are a showcase for audiophile specimens like vinyl, cassettes, and VHS tapes, and a social space for zines, comix, radical publications, and other printed matter as well as original handcrafted works. We celebrate original art, patches, pins, stickers, vintage clothing, ethically-sourced taxidermy, bone jewelry, retro toys, video games, horror memorabilia, and other odds and ends. We see the DIY world as a fusion of music, writers, artists, and makers. We like to think of this as the ultimate confection of indie subculture – a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
