Manifesta was a DIY feminist collective based in Leeds, UK, aiming to create supportive and inclusive spaces for the self-expression of people of all genders and sexualities. One of their projects was to run a distro, distributing zines, music and crafts. The collective was active from 2002-2009.
The name 'Manifesta' was taken from the third wave feminist book Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future written by Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards (2000).
In 2010, the Manifesta Distro went on to become the Jeez Louise Distro, and is now run by one of the former Manifesta collective members.
