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.

FESTIVAL OF ANARCHY

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.

If you would like to propose an event to be included as part of the
Festival of Anarchy, please contact us by e-mail or phone:
anarchistbookfair@taktic.org or 514-859-9090.

The deadline to have your event included in our Festival of Anarchy
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 can be mounted and hung on a wall
or placed in a corner!

For more information about making a proposal for art exhibits, please
consult: http://anarchistbookfair.taktic.org/art.html

The deadline for art exhibit proposals is APRIL 1, 2005.

CALLOUT FOR FILMS

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair will again have a film room running
all day, showing films related to anarchism or anarchist-supported
struggles, that fall within the principles of the Anarchist Bookfair.

For more information about making a film proposal, please consult:
http://anarchistbookfair.taktic.org/film.html

The deadline for film proposals is APRIL 1, 2005.
