Fundraiser for WePress

$1,000 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 17 months
WePress is a new accessible makerspace located in Vancouver’s Chinatown that welcomes diverse groups of people, including those marginalized by class, sexuality, gender, race, culture, disability, mental health, and addictions. 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), an industrial sewing machine, and a 3D printer.

We are working to make WePress a sustainable and long-term place for gathering and art-making in the Downtown Eastside (DTES).  We have applied for more grants, are slowly raising money through our paid workshops, and are developing a social enterprise whereby artists, and low-income and marginalized people can receive payment for their work – for the workshops they teach, the knowledge they share, the artwork they create, and the community they build.

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!
