Hello Friends!

Along with other Robert's Street SOS fundraising events (see more info below if you don't know Roberts Street) City Mail, Make Work Design and City Witch Herbals are collaborating to bring you,


Made to order special packages featuring weird and wonderful items made/collected by Roberts Street members! Every SUPER DELUXE CANDY-GRAM will include a wicked screen printed card with your unique message emblazoned by typewriter.

About Roberts Street and SOS:

The Roberts Street Social Centre provides a space for people to come together in Halifax. The social centre is made up of:

* Anchor Archive Zine Library
* Ink Storm Screenprinting Collective studio
* Crow's Nest space (for events, workshops, and meetings)
* an artist and zinemaking residency program
* The People's Photocopier
* a kitchen
* a yard with fire-pit and garden

Mission: The Roberts Street Social Centre is a collection of projects dedicated to providing free or affordable access to independent and alternative media, art, and education. It is a space for people to come together to share skills, knowledge, and resources. We support critical, creative projects and inspire social change through DIY (do it yourself), non-hierarchical, and consensus-based approaches. We aim to be active in our communities by collaborating with other groups and projects. We strive to be inclusive, aware of barriers and discrimination, and welcoming to all ages.

Times are tight for projects like ours, so we are holding a week of SOS (save our space) to help sustain the work we do. for a full list of events check out the website. If you are interested in supporting the work we do in a long term way contact about our FAN CLUB
