Open Studio

We will be running Open Studios again starting Saturday, April 11th at 1pm.

If you have a project lying in your basement, or if you want to check out the new studio, or just hang out in a radical safer space, listen to music and eat snacks, read zines or screenprint, come on by. We will be open from 1PM to 6PM.

Pricing PWYC / Sliding Scale

Our pricing scheme is based on materials used, overhead cost and in order to support the space and valuing our volunteers’ time. As always, our payment policy is pay-what-you-can, and so all of our prices are on a sliding scale.

Join Sidetracks!

We need collective members! Sidetracks is a screenprinting collective whose mandate is to make screenprining accessible to projects and organisations working for social change, especially those that work around self-representation, self-expression, anti-racism and queer liberation. Check out our mandate here. If you agree with our mandate and want to become a silkscreening superstar and do awesome projects with community organisations, come and join our collective!
We invite you to attend our training to become a member:

Info Session, April 20 @ QPIRG Concordia, 6PM – 8PM: This session is essential for anyone interested in becoming a collective member as we will go over our mandate, responsibilities, and duties, and take the time to answer all of your questions. No commitment is necessary for this session – this is your chance to learn all about what it means to be a Sidetracks member and decide whether that’s right for you.

THE TRAINING, April 25 @ Sidetracks, 1PM – 6PM: This session will teach you everything you need to know in order to use the silkscreen studio, facilitate workshops, work with community groups, take care of the space, and uphold our mandate! Snacks will be provided, but we encourage your to bring something along as well to share.

*Accessibility: Entrance through the backyard. The studio is down a small flight of stairs, five steps from the outside.  The bathroom is on the first floor, up a narrow flight of stairs.  There are no pets.

If you have any questions, please contact us at: sidetracks.team@gmail.com

St-Émilie Skillshare is saying GOODBYE… but Sidetracks is staying!

After 8 years of rad community art, activism, and politics, the St-Émilie Skillshare is saying GOODBYE. We want to thank everyone who has been part of this adventure, who has come to our space, who has organized with us, who has shared their skills with us. Perhaps we will be reborn in the future, but in the meantime, we hope you kittens will keep being the movers and shakers that has made us adore all of you. We are excited for all the new groups and projects that have been developing and that are doing the kind of work we love, especially the queer, trans, Indigenous and people of colour oriented ones that have mandates similar to ours. We want to keep supporting your work in any way we can!

Therefore the Sidetracks Screenprinting Team, our group of volunteer screenprinters, will continue to make screenprinting accessible to projects and organizations working for social change, especially those that meet Ste. Emilie’s mandate around self-representation, self-expression, anti-racism and queer liberation. We are currently fundraising $$$ to build a new studio and to pay off some of the costs from our old one (after being suddenly forced to shut down this summer – thank you gentrification!) Soon we will have a fully functioning studio so watch out for us! If you are an individual or community organization that would like to contribute somehow or collaborate on a screenprinting project with the Sidetracks Screenprinting Team, please get in touch with us! https://steemiliesidetracks.wordpress.com/about/

THINGS WE CAN DO TOGETHER:
– screenprinting workshops for your volunteers or members
– print posters to promote an event or campaign
– print t-shifts or patches to sell, to raise money for your organization
– print bandanas for all your supporters for the next demonstration <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
– print zine or book covers for your publication
– printing projects to get you and your friends through the winter
– organize a fundraiser for us or with us (and have our eternal love)
