About Us

Makó Micro-Press is a mode of relationship or “ugnayan” – in the form of a micro, self-publishing press – which aims to create and sustain counter-hegemonic cultures through zines and other DIY (Do-It-Yourself) artwork.

Makó” is a shortened version of the word “manlalakó” (street vendor), for the reason that we display and sell our works in events, gatherings, and spaces (including digital). We seek to create transformative connections and build solidarities, hoping and persisting that through our works, timely discourses can be made about issues that are otherwise dismissed or marginalized.
