Rabbits Road Press is a community Risograph print studio and publishing press run by artist collective, One Of My Kind (OOMK), situated within the Rabbits Road Institute. With a focus on facilitating original work between local community groups and artists in and around the Old Manor Park Library, the small-scale publishing press will print artist work and custom-bind zines and small publications on demand.
A responsive events programme over the next six months will explore a contemporary model for community publishing that brings together artists, designers, writers and local people in Newham. A scheduled programme of print production workshops, drop-in tutorials, and artist talks will guide participants towards developing their ideas into printed form and de-mystifying the print production process. Artist-led workshops will explore a range of themes and techniques and aim to familiarise participants with various elements of design and publishing while free weekly drop-in sessions offer a space for visitors to work on self-initiated projects.
The project builds on Rabbits Road Institute’s initiative to establish an accessible and diverse community art space to support the development of new skills, knowledge sharing and social exchange for people living in Newham.
