As part of Print! Tearing It Up, Somerset House and Somerset House Studios residents OOMK, present PROCESS!, a two day festival celebrating independent media and making, bringing together established and emerging designers, artists, activists and publishers to explore, interrogate and share approaches to creative and collaborative process. In the context of high speed media and access to infinite information, how do we create time, space and approaches that can enable us to process the social and political climate and create new media and outputs?  

Somerset House Studio artists OOMK co-curate this unique weekend, including a programme of talks, workshops and installations alongside a zine fair. Each strand will highlight different processes behind organising, designing and publishing, whilst consciously considering developments in digital reach and opportunities for international relations. 

There are many ways to be involved in the festival, from having a zine stall to submitting existing GIFs and films, to being commissioned to produce original live activity and events.

Tickets for July’s event will be released in May 2018.

One of My Kind (OOMK) is a collaborative publishing practice led by Rose Nordin, Sofia Niazi and Heiba Lamara. Working together since 2014, OOMK make, publish and distribute books and printed works which arise from self-initiated projects. OOMK also commission new works by women artists and co-curate DIY Cultures, one of the UK’s largest annual independent publishing fairs. With a focus on self-publishing and education, OOMK founded and run a community Risograph printing press in East London,  Rabbits Road Press. OOMK are currently residents at Somerset House Studios.

OOMK Zine is a highly visual, handcrafted small-press publication. Printed biannually, its content pivots upon the imaginations, creativity and spirituality of women. Each issue centres around a different creative theme, with more general content exploring topics of faith, activism and identity.
