+++++++++++++
BACKGROUND
+++++++++++++

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair and Festival of Anarchy is the largest
anarchist event in North America, and an important exchange of anarchist
and anti-authoritarian ideas. The Bookfair is for anarchists and
non-anarchists alike, in French and English, with participants from all
over North America and beyond. Founded in May 2000, the bookfair is now
entering its sixth year.

Anarchist Bookfair events include book and information tables, workshops,
readings, films, presentations, walking tours and much more. Once again,
the Anarchist Bookfair will be followed -- on Sunday, May 22 -- by a full
day dedicated to anarchist-themed workshops and presentations. As in the
past, a "Festival of Anarchy" will take place during the weeks preceeding
the Bookfair, with diverse events organized by anarchist and
anti-authoritarian groups and individuals.

Proposal callouts for workshops, presentations, art exhibits, films,
Festival of Anarchy events and tables are included below. We look forward
to your suggestions and contributions!

CALLOUT FOR WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The bookfair organizing collective is currently seeking workshop and
presentation proposals for the Bookfair (May 21, 2005) and the Day of
Anarchist Workshops and Presentations (May 22, 2005).

For the bookfair day, we are looking for introductory workshops to
anarchism, or an aspect of anarchism, aimed at people who are curious
about, or new to, anarchist ideas. The workshops should be accessible to
non-anarchists.

For May 22, we are seeking proposals that address an anarchist-themed
topic in some depth, and are intended for people who are already familiar
with anarchism, or might identify as anarchists.

--> For more information about proposing workshops and presentations,
including basic guidelines, please consult:
http://anarchistbookfair.taktic.org/workshops.html

NOTE: The deadline for all workshop and presentation proposals is FEBRUARY
15, 2005.

In addition to the Bookfair and Day of Workshops, the entire month of May
is part of a Festival of Anarchy, with diverse anarchist-themed events
occurring at different venues in Montreal.

Festival of Anarchy, please contact us by e-mail or phone:

calendar is APRIL 1, 2005.

CALLOUT FOR ART EXHIBITS

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair will again be displaying artwork relating
to anarchism and anti-authoritarian, autonomous or anarchist-supported
struggles. Please consider proposing an exhibit of photos, posters,
original art, repros - anything within the parameters of the Bookfair that
