Roberts St is a blink-and-you-miss-it kind of place. It is perched parallel between Charles and West, a passage between Agricola and Maynard. On the south side of the street is a building smaller than a granny shack and bigger than a garden shed. Inside, you will find the Roberts St Social Centre.
The centre has functioned for years as the nexus of Halifax’s DIY culture, hosting and fostering events on everything from zines and screen printing to radical queer events. Unfortunately, the centre is in need of a new home due to rising costs.
They need to vacate the space for May 1.
Because of this, the centre will be hosting a meeting this evening to discuss and brainstorm ideas and options on what can and will be done to maintain it. The meeting will be held at the Roberts St Social Centre, 5684 Roberts St, at 6pm. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org as well as check out their online survey.
