Rabbits Road Institute is currently home to Rabbits Road Press, a community Risograph print studio and publishing press run by OOMK. The small-scale publishing press provides printing and book binding services for artists and community groups in Newham and beyond. During the residency, members of OOMK will be on hand to help the resident make the most of the facilities and space.
