Independent Publishing Resource Center

The IPRC's Mission is to facilitate creative expression, identity and community by providing individual access to tools and resources for creating independently published media and artwork. Since its inception in 1998 the center has been dedicated to encouraging the growth of a visual and literary publishing community by offering a space to gather and exchange information and ideas, as well as to produce work. The IPRC is an Oregon 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization.

In conjunction with Pinball Publishing, the IPRC will be hosting CONTENT: A Publishing Party at their open house. CONTENT is the first event of its kind, celebrating the unique independent publishing community in Portland. This publication party will showcase 20 tables filled with printed content created by a wide variety of designers, writers, and makers. Although the digital age can make design feel fleeting, the purpose of this gathering is to promote the lasting, tangible effects of the printed object. Come peruse and purchase printed wares in a festive atmosphere and experience first-hand the distinctive printed matter that forms the intersection of the Portland design and publishing communities.
