(en) US, Baltimore, MidAtlantic Infoshop Gathering

Date Wed, 28 Sep 2005 17:20:58 +0300


Dear Radical Friends --- A MidAtlantic Radical Book Fair is being planned for Spring 2006 in
Baltimore, MD. This seems like a great time to run an infoshop
gathering. We have a lot to gain by working together to create a solid
network of like-minded people: both improving our own respective
infoshops and having an international resource for mass mobilizing efforts.
Topics could include:
What is an infoshop and why do we do this work?
Paid workers versus volunteers
Pros and cons of getting nonprofit status and how to do it
How do we make infoshops relevant and useful outside a punk/anarchist community?

How to start an infoshop: What problems and successes have
infoshops had?

Luddites versus tech geeks: what role does technology play in
infoshops?

Unionizing collective workplaces: How do we unionize when all the
workers are also the owner?

As of late September 2005, this project is in its initial planning stages.
We're looking for the following:

1) People who are interested in planning and organizing the infoshop
gathering

2) Ideas and/or presenters for workshops, suggestions for how this
gathering would be most helpful to you and your infoshop, thoughts
about how to structure the gathering

3) Contact information for infoshops in your area

4) Any other ideas or constructive energy

E-mail infoshop @ redemmas.org with any questions/ideas/concerns
or to be added to the Infoshop gathering listserv. If you have questions
about the book fair itself or would like to help out, please e-mail maabf
@ redemmas.org (remove the spaces around the "@" in the e-mail
addresses first).
