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


Working in pairs, groups and workshops; with photography, dialogue & text, archival materials and book making; developing new approaches as they emerge in the specific context. 

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

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.
