(en) Canada, First Annual Kitchener-Waterloo Anarchist Bookfair! Saturday, February 16th 10am-6pm
Fri, 21 Dec 2012 19:17:04 +0200
At Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work (120 Duke St. W, Kitchener) ---- We’re excited
to announce the 1st annual Kitchener-Waterloo Anarchist Bookfair! Taking place Saturday,
February 16th on Six Nations of the Grand River territory, the bookfair will welcome
anarchists and non-anarchists alike- from seasoned organizers and activists, to those
simply curious about anarchism for a day of workshops, presentations, film screenings,
info tables, book sellers and social events. The bookfair will introduce anarchist ideas,
histories and practices, as well as provide a space for more in-depth conversations around
the ongoing relevance of anarchism, and its implications for on-the-ground organizing and
everyday struggles. ---- Call for Workshops: ---- From the practical to the theoretical
and everything in between, the Bookfair Collective is seeking workshop and presentation
Acknowledging the importance of fighting where you stand, we are particularly interested
in proposals that are grounded in, and relevant to local organizing efforts. We are
looking for workshops that aim to foster a growing anarchist movement, contribute to
critical dialogue, and facilitate strategic discussion. This can include (but is in no way
limited to) presentations on topics such as: anarchist perspectives on indigenous
solidarity work, gentrification, white supremacy and anti-racist organizing,
class-consciousness and intersectionality, queering anarchism, radical parenting and
family inclusivity, ecology, gender violence and community accountability, prison
resistance and abolition, anarchist decision making-models and political organization.
We want to hear from you! Please send workshop proposals, including title and description
(1 page or less) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals should be submitted by Tuesday, January 8th.
A central component of any anarchist bookfair, the event will host a room for infoshops,
booksellers, activist groups and independent publishers to showcase, and distribute
literature and goods.
There is no fee for tabling, however, we ask that 10% of sales is donated to the Bookfair
Collective to help cover event costs.
If you’re interested in tabling, please send a description of your group and a list of the
materials you will be distributing to email@example.com.
In order to make the bookfair a success we need volunteers! If you’re interested in
getting involved, there are countless opportunities to help out with the event, both in
the lead up to the bookfair and the day of. These include: participating in the organizing
process, helping out with postering and general outreach, childcare, food preparation, and
set-up and take-down. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The Bookfair Collective is committed to making the event as accessible as possible. We
realize that society is marked by structural barriers that exclude and marginalize people
on a daily basis, and we strive to create an inclusive event that does not replicate such
barriers. The bookfair will be held in a wheelchair accessible venue with gender-neutral
washrooms, admission is free, lunch, childcare and family oriented programming will be
offered, and ASL translation available upon request.
If you have additional accessibility requests, please let us know and email
email@example.com. We have limited resources, but will do our best to accommodate.
