It was fun while it lasted, but it’s all over now….
From Friday evening’s amazing Cabaret of readings by
Colin Smith, Althea Guiboche, Niigaanwiwedam James Sinclair,
Shayla Elizabeth, and Marie Annharte Baker – to the last workshop
on Sunday afternoon (Art vs Capitalism) we shared blood, toil, tears,
sweat, and laughter – and rocked this town with Anarchism on display!
There’s always room for one more right? We are putting together a discussion on race and racism for Sunday afternoon with our visiting writer, Neal Hall. (he is the author of both “Nigger for Life” and “Winter’s A-Coming Still”) CKUW News Director Michael Welch has agreed to facilitate this workshop which he would title “The Dream of Equality in a Post-Racist Era” THIS WILL HAPPEN TODAY AT 3 PM, IN A ROOM OFF THE MAIN TABLING AREA IN THE BULMAN CENTRE.
Last minute details to remember: we start with a Cabaret Friday evening at 7:30 in the U.ofW.’s Bulman Centre (see list of performers in sidebar at right)
this is free but donations are accepted and will go towards the performers
Saturday is “Canzine Central” presented by Broken Pencil – features more than 25 vendors (list at right in the sidebar) and various activities. We ask a $5 admission which comes with a copy of the brand new issue of BP and other treats. the first 45 folks who pay on Saturday starting at noon are offered an actual canned zine!! If you can’t pay $5 we will not turn you away – it’s pay what you can!
There are Canzine events and DIY workshops on Saturday and in the evening – another Cabaret at 7:30 which again is free, but donations go towards performers. (performers listed at right further down)
Sunday is a total free day starting at noon with most of the tablers back, a GIANT food swap, more DIY workshops, and good times!
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND COME ON DOWN !!!!
