Black Path Press is a community publishing project, producing books with people in South Bank, Middlesbrough; an area surrounding the historical route known as the ‘Black Path’. 

The publications made will explore subjects big and small, past, present and future. 

Together, these books will form a collective document of the area – given out to local libraries, museums and individuals. 

They will also serve as a research and design tool for a public artwork, led by Foundation Press, on a piece of 100m wall on the site of the Black Path – ready for Autumn 2019. 

A community-access printing press is being set-up especially for the area – with an MZ770E risograph arriving at Golden Boy Green Community Centre from late March 2019. 

A calendar of public workshops happening between April-August 2019, in South Bank, will be publicised soon. 

Approaches to books and workshops include: transcribed conversations, sharing archival images, creating images patterns and typefaces collaboratively, individual artist commissions... 

Black Path Press is supported by Arts Council England through National Lottery Projects and Great Place Tees Valley.
