Talks & Workshops
The Anarchist Bookfair returns for its 2022 edition with an exciting and varied programme of radical learning and mutual education, open to all. Discussions and workshops range from the climate crisis and migration to new imperialism and feminism, presented through an anarchist lens.
For full details of the programme, see the Anarchist Bookfair website.
The Anarchist Bookfair has been running in London since 1983 and has become a renowned and well-loved London cultural institution. It was the first such bookfair worldwide and inspired similar events of various sizes both in the UK and across the globe. The bookfair provides a unique hub of activity for the alternative and radical political community, a vital space for rabble-rousing, community organising, activism and discussions. Whether you are an anarchist yourself, involved in a local community struggle, or simply curious, you are warmly invited to attend.
