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 eight 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 20 -- 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.

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!

**********************
* 2. Callout, Workshops *
**********************

The bookfair organizing collective is currently seeking workshop and
presentation proposals for the Bookfair (May 19, 2007) and the Day of
Anarchist Workshops and Presentations (May 20, 2007).

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 20, 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://salonanarchiste.taktic.org/workshops.html

NOTE: The deadline for all workshop and presentation proposals is FEBRUARY
15, 2007.


************************
* 3. How to request a table *
************************

The heart of the bookfair is the main auditorium on May 19, 2007, which
will include booksellers, distributors, independent presses and political
groups from all over Montreal, Quebec and North America, and abroad.
Please make sure to read our principles on our website before contacting
us
to request a table. If you haven't tabled at the bookfair before, please
include a short description of your group and the material you intent to
distribute at the bookfair.

NOTE: The deadline to request a table is APRIL 1, 2007.



*******************************
* 4. Callout, Art Exhibits and Films *
*******************************

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!

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair will also 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.

NOTE: The deadline for art exhibit and film proposals is APRIL 1, 2007.


**********************************
* 5. Callout, Festival of Anarchy Events *
**********************************

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.
