Two Way Street is a community-based publication providing micro-entrepreneurial street vendor opportunities for Albuquerque’s low-income and homeless community. The first issue of Two Way Street was designed and produced based upon the findings of a qualitative research project that included 30+ interviews with local community leaders interested in exploring opportunities for developing a street paper publication in ABQ.
