Book Now

Join Plymouths first Print Social, a chance to meet, connect and make positive change through printmaking in the South West.

Date: Thursday 8th December

Timing: 6-9pm

Following in the footsteps of Plymouths first print festival Print in Action, the inaugural Plymouth Print Social aims to be a connecting platform for printmakers, collectives, organisations, spaces and suppliers. It’s an open space, no matter what stage of your creative journey.

What to expect?

Plymouth is filled to the brim with printmakers, knowledge, facilities, resources, talent and collectively we are stronger working together.

Join us at Ocean Studios, for festive drinks, printing, pizza and a bar to fuel conversation into the evening.

The social will prompt conversations for:

  • Collaboration

  • What do we want to do collectively?

  • What is missing in the city?

  • How do we grow events with the creative community, what do socials look like and what do we want to achieve?

  • How do we move forward?

We want to hear your voice!

We’ll be initiating some quick fire soap box discussions, inviting local printmakers, suppliers, spaces and anybody who wants their voice to be heard, shouting about what they would like to see more of in the city and further afield.

Where is the first social?

Ocean Studios Cafe, Royal William Yard.

This session is free and open to all.
