The Roberts Street Social Centre is a zine library, screenprinting studio, and magical space & collective in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Each summer, they host zine residencies, and I was lucky enough to spend two weeks living in a shed in the backyard of the Roberts Street Social Centre and Anchor Archive back in the summer of 2010, working on a zine about mental health and disability. Those days were among the best of my life. The RSSC has been around for seven years now, and they are in the midst of, sadly, being evicted and moving to a new space. I don’t know if any of my words could ever do this place justice, so I’ll just get to the point: RSSC needs your help and support in the realm of money to find a new space and keep their projects going! Click here to donate (even my mom sent them some cash!). [...]
Oh, and guess what? From now until the last day of March, all proceeds from my Etsy shop will be donated to the Roberts Street Social Centre. So if you were thinking of getting my new zines, or catching up on a few back issues, now is the time to do it!
Here's a photo of Maranda taken during their residency.
