The deadline for proposals for meetings, workshops etc for this years Bookfair has now passed – our email account and postbox was checked just after the 12noon deadline! We are not accepting any more proposals, and we are already oversubscribed.
Many thanks to those who sent in proposals. The bookfair collective meets on 20 March to finalise the programme, and we will be in touch with proposers as soon as we can.
The full Bookfair Programme will be available online in about 1 week. Printed copies will be available on the day of the bookfair, and for about 2 weeks in advance from Kebele social centre and Hydra bookshop.
Here’s a reminder of meeting/events spaces at the Bookfair:
– Bookfair Assembly room inside Trinity, 4 meetings of 90mins each, with a panel of speakers. Meetings include: Anarchism and the future of political struggle; The Shrewsbury 24 Campaign for justice 40 years on; Greece and the EU crisis; The crisis of capitalism and alternatives to austerity.
– Two smaller meeting rooms inside Trinity and Marquee Z outside in the garden for campaign & group meetings.
– Permanent Culture Now marquee outside in the Trinity garden, co-ordinated by PCN with a focus on the commons, land, permaculture, environment, food & DIY.
– some low key acoustic music/performance etc under the Tin Roof Shack in the Trinity garden
– Radical History Zone down the road at Hydra Bookshop, co-ordinated by Bristol Radical History Group.
– There will also be activities run by Trinity’s Permaculture garden, and the Fayre will bring an aspect of playfullness and fun to the outside garden area.
There really will be something for everyone at the Bookfair who is interested in alternatives to the present dominant economic & political systems of profit and control.
