*Callout for Tables and Workshop Proposals*

The Steelworkers’ Hall (25 Cecil Street)

This July 19-20 we will be hosting our annual Toronto Anarchist Bookfair! We invite anti-authoritarians of every age and every walk of life – whether you’re new and curious about anarchism or have been an anarchist for decades – to come join us for a jam-packed weekend of books and zines, workshops and discussions, good food, good friends, and more.

TABLES – are you an anti-authoritarian publisher, zine-collector, artist, activist group, community organization, infoshop, distro, or anything else that wants to connect and share with others? Let us know if you want to reserve a table at the Bookfair! Please let us know if you’d like to table for one or both days (you will be able to store your books or materials overnight in the locked Steelworkers Hall if you’d like).

WORKSHOPS – is there a workshop or conversation that you would like to facilitate? If so, please email us a title and a short description, and we’ll accept as many as we can fit!

(Workshops are 90-minutes long. Our goal is to have one stream of “introductory” workshops and one stream of “in-depth” workshops running simultaneously. So let us know which stream you think your workshop would fit better in).

The deadline for workshop proposals is Sunday June 15.

HELP OUT – do you have some time to help out with the Bookfair? From postering to food prep, please give us a hand!
