The Anchor Archive Zine Library and the People's Photocopier are MOVING to RadStorm at 6050 Almon St.
RadStorm is a DIY collectively run space that houses InkStorm Screenprinting Collective and the SadRad music collective, an all ages practice space and venue. Check it out! http://sadrad.h-a-z.org/
We are very excited to be reunited with InkStorm after a few years of being in separate spaces. At last, zines, the photocopier, and screenprinting together again, and this time with music! It's a very cozy heated space with couches, computer, internet, big windows, and will be complete with a new photocopier/zine making station!
We need help moving!
Packing/prep:Wed Jan 6 at 5:30pm at Plan B (2180 Gottingen St).
MOVING DAY: Sun Jan 10 at 1pm at Plan B (2180 Gottingen) and moving to RADSTORM (6050 Almon St).
We have A LOT of zines to move and a very heavy photocopier so please come lend a hand if you can!!
Plan B has one step going down into the main space of the store.
Radstorm is up 2 flights of stairs. We regret that the space is not very accessible. It was a difficult decision to move to an inaccessible space. We are working on securing funding to install a lift on the stairs. If you would like more info about the accessibility of the space or about our decision making process, please feel free to ask!
