Bigger than a Breadbox
Just going over the plans for the Anarchist Convergence with a
shit. This thing is huge. This is your chance to find out more about
anarchism and those mysterious anarchists. Take part in discussions,
get books and literature, engage, explore, and learn.
Four days of non-stop yumminess. Four days! A bookfair, workshops, panels, speakers, free skool conference, a kick-off show, a squaredance, bike rides, a punk show, camping, a picnic, and more.
Tons of Workshops Scheduled
You brilliant, beautiful, sneaky people submitted almost forty
proposals for workshops, panels, and discussions to address
issues of community inter-relatedness, the Green Scare, security
culture, the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, DIY infrastructure,
applied anarchisms, and resistance. The FreeSkool Conference, happening
simultaneously and open to everyone, will explore starting and running
freeskools, deconstructing public education, freeskools and anarchism,
and more philosophical and practical discussion on skill-sharing
networks and challenging institutional control of learning. Workshops
have been scheduled between 10 am and 6 pm on Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday, and the schedule of workshops will be posted here
in the next day or so.
