Join Stheno Press x Kate Macdonald at our portable printing cart for a letterpress experience curated by, Artist and Activist, Kate Macdonald and executed by printer and proprietor of Stheno Press, Katherine Victoria Taylor. where you can try your hand at printing, take home a keepsake and answer the question: What would you do for your community if you had $88.9 million dollars? $88, 905, 100 is the operational budget of the Halifax Regional Police, and many feel that this money would be better spent on community care and alternative supports. Imagine a world where people don’t have to resort to desperate actions because of living in poverty. Imagine a world where we give those living with mental health issues support and treatment instead of calling the cops during a crisis. What if we had systems in place that helped prevent issues before they escalated? After printing with us, we invite you to display your print and to share a picture to social media along with what your thoughts about what you would do with our newly imagined budget using the hashtag #whatwouldHRMdo. We would also like to encourage participants to email or call their local city councillor to share their thoughts. Keep your eye on social media for informal and educational content which will show off some of the behind the scenes preparation, including but not limited to typesetting and printing.
