(en) Linchpin.ca: Canada, Kitchener-Waterloo Anarchist Bookfair

Date Fri, 18 Jan 2013 08:58:27 +0200

On Saturday, February 16th the 1st annual Kitchener-Waterloo Anarchist Bookfair will be held at the Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work. Taking place 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, and social events. The bookfair will introduce anarchist ideas, histories and practices, as well as provide a space for more in-depth conversations about the ongoing relevance of anarchism, and its implication for on-the-ground organizing and everyday struggles. ---- Acknowledging the importance of fighting where you stand, a large focus of the event will be on presenting ideas that are grounded in and relevant to local organizing efforts.

The bookfair aims to foster a growing anarchist movement, contribute to action-oriented dialogue and facilitate strategic discussion. The event will provide a venue for independent publishers, activist groups, community organizations, infoshops and DIY booksellers to showcase and distribute literature and goods. A jammed-packed schedule of workshops, presentations and activities will take place throughout the day.

From the practical to the theoretical and everything in between, the bookfair will offer programming that covers a diversity of topics, is offered from a variety of perspectives and geared towards people of different experience levels. Topics to be covered include: introduction to anarchism, indigenous solidarity, gentrification, anti-racism, class-consciousness and intersectionality, radical parenting and family inclusivity, ecology, challenging the prison industrial complex, queering anarchism, forms of political organization, and alternative media to name but a few.

The Bookfair Organizing Collective is committed to making the event as accessible as possible. The event 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 is available upon request.

If you have additional accessibility requests, are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please email kwbookfair [at] riseup.net.
