Attendees will have the opportunity to trade and sell their work, network with local and international artists, and learn more about OOMK and Rabbits Road. Together, we will also create a collective zine, which we will print on the Risograph at ChiPRC, leaving participants with a piece of ephemera to take away from the event.

About our Guests:
One of My Kind (OOMK) is a highly visual, handcrafted small-press publication. Printed biannually its content pivots upon the imaginations, creativity and spirituality of women. Each issue centers around different creative theme, with more general content exploring topics of faith, activism and identity.
As well as producing a printed zine, OOMK is present online and hosts regular creative events including DIY Cultures. While OOMK welcomes contributions from women of diverse ethnic and spiritual backgrounds we are especially keen to be inclusive of Muslim women.
Rabbits Road Press is a community risograph print studio and publishing press run by OOMK in the Rabbits Road Institute, within the Old Manor Park Library. The small-scale publishing press will provide printing and book binding services for artists and local community groups in Newham. The project will build on Rabbits Road Institute’s initiative to establish an accessible and diverse community art space to support the development of new skills, knowledge sharing and social exchange for people living in Newham.
