New Orleans Community Printshop & Darkroom
The New Orleans Community Print Shop & Darkroom (NOCPD) is an artist collective that provides the New Orleans community with public access to affordable printmaking and art making equipment, training, and services. It aims to increase awareness, appreciation, and exposure of print media and contemporary printmaking. NOCPD strives to help independent artists build bodies of work and entrepreneurs grow their business through screen- printing. Additionally, it provides youth and adult classes with limited access to arts education and activity. NOCPD seeks to create a supportive print community for volunteers and collective members to grow their artistic practice during non-public Print Shop/Darkroom hours.
