The New Orleans Community Printshop and Darkroom celebrates grand re-opening this Saturday in a new space

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
The New Orleans Community Printshop and Darkroom is holding their grand re-opening this Saturday in their new space at 1201 Mazant St. hosted by Dirty Coast and the Jazz Foundation of America.
 
Founded in 2009, “The New Orleans Community Printshop and Darkroom is a community based resource for people interested in learning or teaching printmaking and photography.”
“A collective of printmakers and photographers got together to start a darkroom and a facility for printmaking,” explained Rachel Speck, a member of the print shop. “The shop is open to the public and anyone from all different levels of learning can come in and print at affordable prices.”
 
At the grand re-opening, The Some-Times Picayune will be making an appearance. “The Some-Times Picayune is our statement against printed media like The Times Picayune cutting their staff and frequency of publication. Many have taken this as a sign that print is dying fast. Well, the New Orleans Community Printshop and Dirty Coast have other plans! We believe that hand silk screened images and text, and other forms of traditional publishing and printing are not lost, and it's our pleasure to keep them very much alive.”

“We’re asking people to send in articles, 500 words or less, to be voted on to be included in the newspaper. Then, on the day of the grand opening, we will print the articles on-site for The Some-Times Picayune.”
 
The grand re-opening will also feature live music from the Hot 8 Brass Band and Treme Brass Band as well as free food provided by the Community Kitchen.


 
WHAT: The Grand Re-Opening of the New Orleans Community Printshop
 
WHEN: Saturday, November 10 (5:00pm)
 
WHERE: 1201 Mazant St.
