Announcing the Austin Anarchist Bookfair on February 9th, 2020.
The Austin Anarchist Bookfair 2020 is a regional event bringing together anarchists and like minded folx from across the city, region, and the so-called nation. We look forward to fostering connections between anarchists, left libertarians, and anti-authoritarians. Also, we hope to celebrate the communities we have growing here and across the globe.
We’re looking for organizations, affinity groups, zine makers, passionate speakers, and anarchists to participate this year. If you or your group are interested in participating (it’s free!) please read the info below and respond by February 1st 2020.
The fair will be on Feb 9th 2020 from 12-7 at the Spider House Ballroom. We are reaching out to local, regional, and national organizations to offer you a free table at this year’s event. We are looking for orgs focused on anarchism, mutual aid, harm reduction, and zine publishing to table our 2020 event. we have approximately 15 tables spaces available as well as 6 speaker slots.
We are committed to creating a welcoming space for all people, including gender diverse folks, people with disabilities, parents, children, femmes, women and people of color. In order to create that space, preference will be given to orgs and speakers centered on those communities.
THE BOOKFAIR WILL PROVIDE:
• Event space
• Promotion (help from tabling orgs encouraged!)
