Upcoming: Milkcrate’s Radical Art Resource Library

“Vote for the Free Library” Referendum Campaign Cards, 1882, Toronto, in Toronto in Print: A Celebration of 200 Years of the Printing Press in Toronto, 1798-1998  

I’ve been playing around with this idea for a while now.

In essence, I’ve become addicted to collecting books on radical art & design, and I want to direct that passion into a collective project: a radical art resource library!

Why? 

~ Because libraries are based on the radical idea that information should be free

~ To name and carve out some space for radical art & design, because it is neglected

~ To think about new ways to collectivize & collaborate

~ To have fun

~ To stack cool books into milk crates and find places to put them, bring them, and share them! (especially with folks who might not get a hold of them otherwise)

Right now I have 1/3 of an arbitrary starting goal. And only 1 milk crate.

But I’m working on it and I felt like sharing.

P.S. Shout outs to the Dr. Chun Resource Library and Toronto Zine Library

 

 Hoarding in progress, and some already lent out!
