Our Friends: thoughtcrime ink
Welcome to Edmonton!
A city where the most dangerous weapon to those in power is knowledge, ideas and discussion. Anarchism draws on all of these things to advocate that we need not be content with the status quo, that positive change is possible, that we need not be slaves to economic or political masters. From this comes the concept of the Anarchist Bookfair, a place where knowledge and ideas are made available, especially those one might not encounter every day.
Learn, Share, Connect!
Since 2002 the Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair has provided the public with the opportunity to learn, share ideas and connect with others over a free three-day event. People are able to access radical books, see independent documentaries and participate in skill-share workshops. The event has attracted vendors, speakers and participants from all over Western Canada and beyond.
In the future, we hope to expand our pre-event fundraising, and continue to provide an open forum for anarchists and non-anarchists can share ideas, read books, and be challenged. Both anarchist and non-anarchist communities benefit from this event.
This year's Anarchist Bookfair will be taking place October 12-14, 2012 at the Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre, 8426 Gateway Blv, Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre, one building north of the Old Strathcona Farmers Market. (See a map ). We're looking forward to seeing you there!
