We encourage your workshop proposals for both days of this year’s Bookfair (May 27 or 28, 2016). You can submit workshops that are: i) introductions to anarchism (reminder: introductions to anarchism, not introductions to other topics) or ii) workshops on other topics related to anarchism that explore an anarchism-themed topic in some depth (reminder: topics related to anarchism that explore an anarchism-themed topic in some depth, not just a generic social justice topic).

Get in touch to reserve a date for your event in May or early June (calendar dates are “first come first served”).
