Calling all zinesters, screenprinters and DIY lovers: Roberts Street Social Centre needs your help!
Roberts Street Social Centre is a creative space for people to come together in Halifax (Nova Scotia, Canada). We are currently home to the Anchor Archive Zine Library, Inkstorm Screenprinting Collective and the Peoples’ Photocopier.
Over the 7 years we’ve called Roberts Street our home we’ve hosted artist residencies; provided skillshare workshops; screened films; been a place for Food Not Bombs to cook; had back yard fires and punk shows; and held many meetings.
Keep all this momentum going! On May 1st we will be moving to a new home after being evicted from our current Roberts Street location.
We’re really excited about the potential of our new space. We want to continue the programming we’ve built and start new projects too! Setting up shop in a new location comes with a hefty price tag. Our collective DIY ethic will be put to task with renovating our new space, but it all adds up! Our total fundraising goal is $10,000. Over the next couple of months we’ll be introducing other fundraising initiatives too. We set a really modest goal on Indie-Go-Go so we need your help to surpass it!
halifax was my ol’ stomping grounds, and these folks are fantastic, so if you’ve got any spare cash - by all means, let’s keep this project going.
