October 6th, 2019 marks the second annual fundraiser for North Bay Letterpress Arts. We are excited to gather for a lunchtime event at Hopmonk Tavern, where a special menu & libations will be served. We will enjoy a talk by guest Kathleen Walkup, a silent auction & raffle, and other fun & games. Lunch will be followed by a reception and champagne toast up the road at the printshop. We hope you choose to join, sponsor, or donate to this special event!
OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL: $10,000
Our 2nd fundraiser is a luncheon and reception for the community. The goal is two-fold: 1) to raise funds to launch a youth printing program, in which the history & art of printing/bookmaking is explored by middle & high school students both in their schools & in our shop, and 2) to sustain our organization in our current location into the future.
NBLA offers the chance for students to explore history, literature, and printmaking, all in one visit. During a time when art programs are disappearing from schools, iPads are replacing physical books, and Twitter is shortening our attention spans to 140 characters, we are inviting children and adults to fall in love with the act of writing, reading, and printing again.
