Sofia Niazi and Sahra Hersi from Rabbits Road Press are running this event all about the worlds of self-publishing and publishing.

From risographed fanzines to working with Bookworks they’ve amassed a range of experience getting their ideas into circulation via print and will be sharing this with you and answering questions.

We are expanding the range of things we stock at NewBridge Books and increasing the publishing activity in the region. This event is part of that progress.

Sahra Hersi is a multidisciplinary architectural designer and artist based in London. After graduating from the Royal College of Art Architecture programme, she found herself free to reinterpret what architecture means. She has been quietly rebelling against her architectural education ever since. Her practice explores shared spaces, the public realm, collaboration and community engagement. Her work is often born out of engaging with local communities and the spaces they occupy.

Sofia Niazi is an artist and illustrator working and living between London and Birmingham. She completed an MA in illustration at Kingston University. As part of OOMK, she currently runs a community RISO print studio in Newham, Rabbits Road Press, with studio mates Rose Nordin and Heiba Lamara. She employs various digital and hand drawn techniques and crafts to explore questions around housing, technology and politics. Sofia has produced work for Migration Museum, Museum of London, Barbican and The Guardian, amongst others. She regularly leads workshops and delivers talks about her work in community, gallery and academic settings.
