We are looking for contributors and collaborators for our new project on Union Street, which will go live on the 21st of June for 10days. Union Press is a temporary and small scale publishing house dedicated to Union Street in South London. It is an open publishing workshop examining the ins and outs of Union Street and it's surrounding communities while experimenting with forms of public production.
For a 10 day period in late June 2012, we will open our doors on Flat Iron Square from a custom designed billboard kiosk. A public program consisting of walks, talks and workshops will result in a multitude of publications ranging from catalogs, post cards, posters, fanzines, and more.
To keep up to date with the rapidly evolving program visit our website www.unionpress.cc or get in touch directly if you would like to find out more or join the production. Union Press is a project by public works, commissioned by Better Bankside as part of Bankside Urban Forest.
This is an open call for all those who would like to get involved with Union Press, contribute to the public program and help us publish Union Street. We would like to invite collaborators and contributions to make inventive, surprising and critical proposals for a small publication addressing a specific interest in Union Street.
If you would like to join in and submit a proposal we need a short description of max 500 words along with a brief bio. Ideas should explore a particular aspect of Union Street, its communities, industries, histories or futures. Proposals should suggest an inventive or experimental form of direct publishing along with a public event to take place on Flat Iron square between June 21st and July 1st 2012.
We have a limited budget for publications, print runs will be small and mono color. An honorarium of 150GBP will be paid. Deadline for ideas is wednesday the 6th of June. For any question contact firstname.lastname@example.org
