The IPRC's mission is to provide affordable access to space, tools, and resources for creating independently published media and artwork, and to build community and identity through the creation of written and visual art. We nurture collaboration, creativity, and community-building through access to shared print-studio space, educational programming, and community events for writers, artists, printmakers, organizers, and small publishers. We provide equitable access to tools, resources, and unconditional support for Portlanders to share the stories & causes closest to their hearts through the production of independently-published zines, prints, chapbooks, art books, chapbooks, prints, and print ephemera. The IPRC exists to demystify print & publishing processes, and remove barriers to creative expression.
Show:Tell Youth Camps are week-long offerings for Middle Grades and High School Artists and Writers, with opportunities to learn, explore, and make Comics, Zines, Screenprints, Letterpress Prints, Bookarts and Creative Writing with IPRC Teaching Artists. Registration includes a year of IPRC Membership to encourage print & zine-making all year long.
