It's coming soon, Winnipeg's second annual anarchist bookfair. This time inside, at the Broadway Neighbourhood Community Centre, and not outside at a high of 5 with a wicked wind a'blowin' (ah the sweet memories). Combined this year with the Winnipeg DIY Festival. Here from the Festival website (with a few details to be ironed out) are some of the details.

In it's 3rd year, DIY fest will feature workshops on skills & stuff, discussions on anarchy and activism in Winnipeg, A bookfair with vendors of radical and alternative publications, and fun evening events.

The fun theme of DIY Fest 2009 is Post Apocalyptic Survival, hence the background image. (See the website-Molly)
Workshops with a focus on teaching useful and interesting skills will be put on by you. Call or email us to let us know if you want to arrange to lead a workshop. There will also be a few spots left open for those last minute folks.
Most events will occur at the Broadway Neighbourhood community Center, located on Young St just south of Broadway. A few events will occur at other venues.
