We wanted to give a little boost to a project of one of our members, TechnoCulture Club. The project, which starts in March, offers training and the use of their risograph to people who are QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour). If you’ve had a zine project on your mind, this is your chance!
Community Risograph : Zine making for QTBIPOC
Since Techno Culture Club was founded, the organisation has always wanted to foster social inclusion through educational technology so this project is an opportunity for the QTBIPOC communities and their allies to create community resources related to different subjects around Digital Rights & Digital Justice using our Risograph.
A RISOGRAPH is a printer that combines the analog technology of screen-printing with the digital technology of a photocopier. It is a very eco-friendly printer, using biodegradable inks based from rice oil & soy, with registered recycled ink cartridges, and uses between 70-97% less energy than the average printer!

Every Sunday from March 3rd, 2019, Techno Culture Club will provide sessions related to Digital Rights & Justice, for QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) community and its allies* with aim to encourage self empowerment through print as well as providing access to our RISOGRAPH.
