Beer Night #2

Heck yes, we are moving on to Round 2 of the infamous beer nights!

The Anarchist Book Fair crew wants to thank everyone that came out to our first beer night fundraiser. In fact, it was so successful and so much fun that we have decided to have another one.

It will be at Winston's again in the cellar on Friday, October 17th from 7-9pm.

Infamy ftw!!

2008 Book Fair - Official Call-Out for Vendors, Workshops, & Volunteers!

*Please forward widely!*
*Please direct all replies to: saskatoonanarchy@gmail.com*

The 3rd Annual Saskatoon Anarchist Book-Fair is quickly approaching, and we
are looking for vendors, workshop facilitators, and volunteers to help make
the event a great success!

The fair will take place this year on November 7th to 9th, 2008 at the Cosmo Senior Citizen's Centre off Broadway (614 11th Street East). Friday will consist of an evening social with details to be announced. Saturday will be the jam-packed day of book fair, including free vegan food, workshops, discussions, activist networking, and of course TONS of alternative and DIY media! Saturday night, we will be hosting our infamous Anarchist Book Fair party, which will include live music, drinks, and dancing all under the theme of Glamarchy! On Sunday, we finish it off with another day of food, organizing, and workshops (location TBA).

The event will be wheel-chair accessible and all ages, with free admission, free vegan food, free workshops, and free child-care. Donations will be accepted at the door to recoup expenses.

If you run a distro, store, collective, or other organization and would like to register a table to distribute your anarchy-related wares, please try to confirm with us before October 31st by filling out the following form. Tables are free!

Likewise, if you want to lead a free workshop, please get in touch by filling out the following form. We are especially looking for creative and unusual workshop ideas that build community, deal with current needs, share useful skills, and are inclusive. We can supply electrical outlets,
white-boards/flip-charts, chairs, tables, pens/paper, and quiet space – let us know what you need. Again, please confirm with us by October 31st.

If you want to volunteer a couple hours to help out before or during this fun and busy day, we need you! Let us know before-hand what you enjoy most: childcare, cooking, cleaning, set-up, take-down, transporting items by bike or car, planning, or promotion, OR just show up on the day and ask someone what needs to be done. All contributing efforts are highly valued, and we
encourage drop-in visitors to take a shift washing dishes, sweeping, or moving tables to lighten the workload for everyone.
