WE MOVED!

 
 

Come check out our new location at 2801 Franklin Ave, right under the Franklin Ave bridge!

At long last! We will open starting February 2019!

New Orleans Community Printshop is a collectively-run nonprofit community art space specializing in printmaking and photography.

We provide access to arts processes that typically would be out of reach due to space requirements and expensive materials/equipment. Together, we create a space, supported by the community that uses our tools, that exceeds any of our individual efforts.

OPEN SHOP

 
 

TUESDAY and THURSDAY 6-10PM (Starting February 2019)

Come screenprint or use the darkroom at an affordable rate! All skill levels encouraged to come by!

Screenprinting

To screenprint, just bring in an image printed on transparency (can be done at Kinko’s or the Community Photocopier at Crescent City Books) or a drawing on transparency/tracing paper (not sharpie, an ink pen like Micron or India Ink pen, must be opaque). You can rent screens for the night for $7 and can use a cup of ink for $5!

Darkroom

To use the darkroom there’s a different process with different prices that someone in the darkroom would probably know about.

MEMBERS

 

We are a collectively organized space that runs on the hard work of its members, the space functions on 100% volunteer labor. All decision making happens on a collective level and all shop developments are the fruits of self-organization and individual ambition.

Interested in joining?

Come by the shop during open shop hours (TUES & THURS 6-10pm) and ask a member or come to our monthly members meeting the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30pm.

Members work 12 hours/month at the shop, pay $50/month in dues and are required to go to the monthly meeting.

If interested in becoming a member, come to an open shop and talk to a member to start volunteering. Before becoming a member, new folks are asked to do 12 hours of volunteer work. After which, at the next monthly meeting, new members will be voted into the collective.

Once voted in, new members will be given a key for 24 hour access to the space!

Do I have to volunteer to be a member?

No, you can pay $150/month, you will get a key and are not required to go to monthly meetings.
