Fundraiser for WePress

WePress is a community artspace in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, BC, Canada on the occupied and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓il̓wətaʔł (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

The mission of WePress is to offer historic and contemporary methods of print- and art-making in a safe and welcoming space, particularly to those marginalized by systems of class, sexuality, gender, race, culture, disability, mental health, addictions, and colonization. We seek to support them to voice their stories, lived experience, and dreams, and to build community capacity and resilience through art-making.

WePress provides access to a unique assortment of hard-to-access technologies, including a letterpress and type (wood, polymer, and metal letterforms, and soon, a set of 8000+ Chinese characters) and two 3D printers. We are working to raise funds to provide free workshops and employment opportunities to low income people.

Help us make WePress a vibrant place of work and skills-building for both artists and residents of the DTES. by making a donation. Every little bit helps!
