Inkworks needs a fill-in prepress operator for the month of August.

Department: Uncategorized / Posted on July 25, 2021

We need a person with plenty of print shop experience who can hit the ground running. In depth knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite and Quark in a production environment is essential. A working knowledge of Rampage and the Microsoft Office suite would also be very helpful.

If you get the job you will be a permanent stand-in when people go on vacation and when production gets hectic. You would also be first in line when a full time position becomes available!

Write to us if you’re interested at [email protected] with “fill-in job” in the subject line.

The mural is done! Now we need your help.

The Mural is complete! We had a wonderful celebration gathering on June 12. Lots of friends and neighbors got to see the unveiling, with music and dancing spilling into the street in front of Inkworks.

The mural has transformed the outside of our building into a vivid and colorful representation of the past 40 years of people’s history and grassroots movements.

The painting of the mural has incurred debts we need to pay back. Please donate and become a part of this vibrant public art available for our entire community to see and appreciate.

We will gladly accept any size donation. Just a few dollars from each one of you will help pay outstanding bills for paint and scaffolding. For donations of $100 or more, we will gratefully give you a copy of our critically acclaimed book Visions of Peace and Justice signed by current members of the Inkworks Collective and Juana Alicia, mural director.
