(en) Canada, Montreal Anarchist Bookfair: deadline for workshop proposals: MARCH 21!

Date Mon, 15 Mar 2010 18:37:32 +0200

The deadline for tables, art exhibit proposals, film proposals and Festival of Anarchy events is APRIL 1. ---- Mark your calendars ---- MONTREAL ANARCHIST BOOKFAIR 2010
MAY 29-30, 10am-5pm at the CEDA, 2515 rue Delisle (a short walk from Lionel-Groulx metro) FREE. Welcome to all! ---- No gods, no masters, no bosses, no borders. ---- Curious about anarchism?: check us out! ---- Participants from all over Quebec and North America, booksellers and vendors, workshops, films, discussions, kids activities, art exhibits and more! ---- Part of the month-long Festival of Anarchy held throughout the month of May at venues and locations all over the island of Montreal. ---- NOTE: During this year’s Bookfair, tabling will take place over TWO DAYS: May 29-30, between 10am-5pm.

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair -- and month-long Festival of Anarchy -- bring together anarchist ideas and practice, through words, images, music, theatre and day-to-day struggles for justice, dignity and collective liberation.

The Bookfair is for people who don't necessarily consider themselves anarchists, but are curious about anarchism, as well as a space for anarchists to meet, network and share in a spirit of respect and solidarity. All are welcome.

The Bookfair is organized in a spirit of openness towards the different traditions, visions, and practices of anarchism. Together we share a commitment to promoting anarchism through the values of mutual aid, grassroots democracy, direct action, autonomy and solidarity, while opposing oppression in all its forms.

The Bookfair and Festival of Anarchy provide an important gathering and reference point for anti-authoritarian ideas and practice in North America.

Workshops, Tables, Art Exhibits & Films, Festival of Anarchy Events

a) Workshop Proposals

We encourage your workshop and presentation proposals for both days of this year’s Bookfair (May 29 or 30).

You can submit workshops that are introductions to anarchism, or a proposal that explores an anarchism- themed topic in some depth.

Introductory workshops should be aimed at people who are curious about, or new to, anarchist ideas. These workshops should be accessible to non-anarchists.

The in-depth workshops should be intended for people who are already familiar with anarchism, or might identify as anarchists.

We also encourage workshop proposals that could be part of an Autonomous Media Room. Autonomous media workshops can be hands-on and skillshare-style workshops, or workshops that explore independent, alternative and autonomous media in-depth in some form.

Please consult the following link for detailed information about workshop proposals, including guidelines: http://www.anarchistbookfair.ca/en/node/9

--> The deadline for workshop proposals is MARCH 21, 2010
