Community Risograph : Zine making for QTBIPOC
Since Techno Culture Club was founded, the organisationhas always wanted to foster social inclusion through educational technology so this project is an opportunity for the QTBIPOC communities and their allies to create community resources related to different subjects around Digital Rights & Digital Justice using our Risograph.
A RISOGRAPH is a printer that combines the analog technology of screen-printing with the digital technology of a photocopier. It is a very eco-friendly printer, using biodegradable inks based from rice oil & soy, with registered recycled ink cartridges, and uses between 70-97% less energy than the average printer!

just tolerance—it means actively trying to break down the barriers and create better
circumstances for others, including marginalized people” from Build Together
