We publish zine and small books of artists we think deserve to be highlighted, as well as informative zines about various activism subjects.
We collect zines and make them accessible to the public during our opening hours.
We organize events, including book fairs, exhibitions, screenings, dance parties, conferences, and more.
We produce workshops on various subjects open to the public or for specific organizations.
We create connections between people to build a strong, independent community of creative minds.
