Community Risograph Project Description

The project: A community of practice

Aim: to encourage social inclusion through access to print, community dialogue & access to our RISOGRAPH.

This was an opportunity for Techno Culture Club to foster social inclusion through community dialogue and educational technology access. In March 2019, 4 sessions were offered to the community of QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) and its allies as a space to discuss Digital Rights & Digital Justice. Participants were invited to make zines as resources on these subjects and were able to print them using our Risograph. Participants also had access to use the Risograph to print during open hour sessions to provide further access to the technology.

The approach was based off of Detroit’s Community Technology Project, in their set of principles, Digital Justice includes access, participation, common ownership, and healthy communities.

How to use this resource ?

This resource was created for those interested in using the Risograph at Techno Culture Club as well as facilitators or makers with interest setting up a Risograph in their space.

This is an step-by-step introduction to our machine, to Risography, and as a general resource for those wanting to learn more about print-making using a Risograph.
