Rabbits Road Press is a community risograph print studio and publishing press run by OOMK. The small-scale publishing press provides printing and book binding services for artists and local community groups in Newham.
A responsive programme of workshops, drop-ins and events over the next six months will explore a contemporary model for community publishing, bringing together artists, designers, writers and local people. 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.
Rabbits Road Press is an OOMK project commissioned by Create London and supported by Arts Council England.
About Rabbits Road Institute
Drawing on the history of the Old Manor Park Library building, Rabbits Road Institute celebrates the Free Public Library and Worker’s Education Movements by creating an open space dedicated to self-education and independent thought. It exists to promote the development of culture, ideas and debate through everyday knowledge and experience. It is a space for new ways of thinking and creating inspiring activities that are open to all.
Rabbits Road Institute was set up in 2015 by artists Ruth Beale and Amy Feneck, who work together as The Alternative School of Economics.
