(en) US, NYC, 10-Year Celebration for the Institute for Anarchist Studies

Date Mon, 30 Jan 2006 12:28:49 +0200


Decade of Dissent: The 10-Year Celebration for the Institute for Anarchist
Studies Friday, February 10, 2006, 7 p.m. at the Brecht Forum, New York City
Dear friends and supporters, old and new,
The Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) warmly invites you to "Decade of Dissent:
The 10-Year Celebration for the Institute for Anarchist Studies." Since 1996, the
IAS has been promoting critical scholarship on social domination and reconstructive
visions of a free society. Through grants, events, journals, and other projects, we
have contributed to anarchist scholarship, helped build a community of support for
present-day anti-authoritarian projects, and renewed the long-term commitment for
the future. We hope you will gather with us to celebrate this wonderful occasion.

Please join us for food, conversation, drinks, and socializing. This
event is a fund-raising event, of course, so bring your checkbooks or
cash. But it is also a fantastic opportunity for networking,
socializing, and reaffirming our dedication to critical engagement and
radical social change now and for years to come.

The evening begins at 7:00 p.m., and includes a full Indian meal (with
meat and vegetarian dishes) served at approximately 8:00 p.m. Board
members will provide updates about the IAS and our activities, including
the Renewing the Anarchist Tradition Conference in Vermont, recent grant
recipients, and upcoming issues of our theoretical journal,
"Perspectives on Anarchist Theory." Additionally, we invite you to share
information about your projects and activities.

Your sliding scale donation of $10-$25 includes dinner and coffee, and
there will also be an affordable cash bar for beer and wine. And again,
please bring along your checkbook or cash to this fund-raiser in order
to support this year's group of radical scholars working to develop the
theoretical tools necessary to build a just and free society.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, February 7th to info@anarchist-studies.org, and
feel free to forward this invitation to people you think might also
enjoy this festive evening. We look forward to seeing you there!

Cindy Milstein and Rob Augman, for the Institute for Anarchist Studies

"Decade of Dissent" will be held at the Brecht Forum, in New York City.
The Brecht Forum is located in lower Manhattan, at 451 West Street
(that's the West Side Highway) between Bank and Bethune Streets.

TO GET THERE:

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Take A, C, E, or L to 14th Street and 8th Avenue, walk down 8th Avenue
to Bethune, turn right, walk west to the river, turn left

Take 1, 2, 3, or 9 to 14th Street and 7th Avenue, get off at the south
end of station, walk west on 12th Street to 8th Avenue, go left to
Bethune, turn right, walk west to the river, turn left.

Take PATH Train to Christopher Street north on
Greenwich Street to Bank Street, left to the river.

Take #11 or #20 bus to Abingdon Square, west on Bethune

Take #14A or #14D bus to 8th Avenue and 14th Street, walk down 8th
Avenue, and go west on Bethune to the river

Take #8 bus to 10th and West Streets

DRIVING DIRECTIONS
From the West Side Highway: Coming from downtown, just take the West Side
Highway to our door. Coming from uptown, there is no left turn near Bank and
West so you should get off the highway at 14th Street, go one block and turn
right on Washington Street, turn right again on 11th Street, go one block back
to West Street, and turn right. You will be one block below
Bank Street.

From the interior of Manhattan: Take any avenue to 11th Street, turn west and
drive to the Hudson River, turn right onto West Street, and we are one block north.

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE FOR ANARCHIST STUDIES

The IAS was established as a nonprofit foundation in 1996 in order to
support the development of anarchism through a grant-giving program for
radical writers. To date, the IAS has funded over fifty projects by
authors and translators from around the world.

The IAS has grown significantly since its inception. In addition to
supporting projects like the Latin American Archives Project and
cosponsoring the Renewing the Anarchist Tradition conference, the IAS
also publishes a biannual magazine, "Perspectives on
Anarchist Theory," as a forum in which to frame, explore, and debate
questions of significance to contemporary anarchist theory and practice.

The IAS relies entirely on contributions from generous individuals
around the world to be able to carry out its programs.
