Gendai G.E.D. (Guerrilla Equity Development) and Esker Foundation invites you to join us on March 30th for a risograph printing and zine making session, and conversation about arts and community with guest local printing house Yolkless Press.

This is an open, drop-in space for youth to meet, chat, snack, listen to music, relax, hang out, and (if you want to) make art!

Yolkless Press makes cost-accessible artists’ publications, postcards, posters, packaging, pamphlets, and other printed things, and envisions being an artist-run space that self-sustains through the revenues generated from the press activities.

Gendai (Marsya and Petrina) are an art collective based in Tkaronto/Toronto dedicated to racialized artists as the next generation of cultural leaders, radical thinkers, and visionaries.

We hang out and chat with BIPOC, racialized, immigrant, and other equity-deserving youth who are involved in the arts in order to learn from each other, dream together, and build pathways towards futures that are more fair and equal to all. We connect youth to other youth and local artists who also dream of equitable futures. We create the space to make art together, or simply just be together.
