Psst! Got any anarchist art to display at the Bookfair?

Art Space Callout for the Bookfair

BAB2016stick1_artmedCalling all those that love to put their politics into their art!
Whether you enjoy doing a bit of spoken word, or use a spraycan to subvertise, or perhaps you’ve subverted your old lego collection to build a model of an anarchist Bristol? To those that have a cupboard full of beautiful banners, or have a wall covered with posters and stickers..bring them along!

This year at the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair, we are looking to have a gallery displaying anarchist artwork, with a PA for those that want to do something more vocal – spoken word, poetry, storytelling etc!

This year’s theme is ‘Building an anarchist future’ – basically what would an anarchist society look like? For example, how would waste be managed, or power produced? What about food and resource distribution? How would an anarchist society treat gender and sexuality, race and abilities? Any work around this theme would be great, but we would also like all your protest art too!

Please email bristolanarchistbookfair[at] or call/text 07486267013 if you would like to contribute some art, or if you would like to run a creative workshop, or help run the space.

You could drop smaller art contributions off to us at a Bookfair planning meeting (ie 7 & 21 February, then bi-weekly)…but ideally you’ll bring it along on the Friday afternoon/early Saturday and put it up yourself! We will be in the Trinity Centre on the Friday 29 April from 2pm, and from 9am on Saturday morning for you to put it up.

Please note you will have to take down/remove your artwork when the Bookfair ends at 6pm on 30 April. Many thanks for you contribution!
