Just recieved a new contribution for the HBS  book, from the amazing Kristyna.
Check out her work, it's super awesome.
I will be doing a proper update to the HBS blog soon.

Incase you missed the P.R.E.S.S. mail out:


As discussed at the last meeting, we will go ahead with a series of small events early next year. The idea is to raise the profile of what we're trying to achieve, build up a network of contacts, establish a community and recruit more people who have the time and the passion for building a community business. The events should also help us decide what is viable and what is needed by the community.

I'm involved with running a comics event at the Tyneside Cinema in March which I will do under the P.R.E.S.S. banner, so we can tie it in with our other events.

It will be followed by a series of talks in Sunderland and then a weekend event which will be a taster version of what we would hope to do with a permanent space.

The council have been very helpful with the proposals. I have a slew of meetings early in the new year which should determine the venue, funding and dates.

If you are interested in giving a talk or workshop, having a stall or exhibiting work and you have not already been contacted by me, please get in touch a.s.a.p!


We've got some branding now, thanks to fonografiks, which I will be unveiling very soon! We now also have a twitter account, http://twitter.com/PRESSukinfo , which will mainly be used for news and opportunities until the events get under way, so get in touch if you'd like a mention or if you have anything to promote. And please follow us if you are on twitter too.
