Road Less Travelled Press was initiated by Tamara Rabea in spring 2021 as a framework towards a collective publishing practice, mutual exchanges, and collaboration.

    The core idea: to explore acts of protest and kindness in public space. How do individual and collective action link and grow, both rooted in agency and interdependence? 

Working in pairs, groups and workshops, with photography, dialogue, archives, libraries; and other approaches as they emerge in the specific context. 

    Through collective learning and publishing, the press’ aim is to generate and circulate narratives of agency and social change.

Most of what I do starts with an invitation. This publishing activity started with an invitation to friends and people I have worked with - on books, campaigns, workshops & projects. See some of the contributions, a range of photographs based on personal experiences of acts of kindness and protest in public space.

JULY / AUGUST 2021



The framework of Aboriginal pedagogies called 8ways has been so helpful for learning in new ways about collectivity and circulation. Working with symbols & images, story sharing, mapping and visualising processes, place & community based experiences, being hands-on and reflective, with non-linear or synergistic approaches to deconstruct/ reconstruct new ideas.
