Heiba Lamara is an artist-researcher exploring independent print, publishing and archival practices as a creative practice for social change. She is the Assistant Editor of OOMK Zine since 2013 and co-founder of Rabbits Road Press, a community-focused Risograph studio in London. Self-directed project-based research around print, oral histories, archives and coloniality, are translated into zines, artist books and participatory workshops and exhibitions with the aim of offering readers/participants a closer relationship with under explored topics related to the cultural history of marginalised communities.
Heiba is currently working on an oral history project about road-tripping North African families supported by DYCP (ACE) and a set of ethnobotanical participatory notebooks inspired by her work as a market gardener.
Cove Park’s Associates programme creates new opportunities for our former residents. The Early Carrer Associates Residency also includes mentoring and the opportunity to work with Cove Park’s Curator of Engagement, Emma Henderson, on the development of a Saturday Studios workshop as part of Cove Park’s engagement and public events programme.
