February 18 - 20th, 2011
Hello and welcome to Anarchist Summer School, an educational conference and convergence happening on the 18th- 20th February 2011, at Black Rose Books, Jura Books and other community venues in Sydney (to be confirmed). We are the organising collective, and our background is in radical reading groups and student environmental groups, although we are also involved in various anarchist collectives in Sydney.
We hope to have three days of workshop and forums on different aspects of anarchist theory and practice. Some current topics that we are keen to see discussed are: classical and modern anarchist theory, autonomous Marxism, the overlap and differences between anarchism and socialism, mutual aid, anarchist influence and involvement in social movements, and different streams of anarchist thought and action.
The organising collective would like to hear your ideas on what you would like to see happen at the convergence, what topics you would be keen to learn about, and to invite you to submit workshops that you can run. You can submit your ideas and workshop plans by emailing anarchistsummerschool [at]gmail.com or by submitting a short form on this website (click on the 'Program' tab).
We would also like to invite interested folks to join the organising collective. The collective meets weekly to organise things like venue, program content and workshops, and food.
On the final day of Summer School, we invite anarchist groups and collectives to an assembly on the Anarchist movement in Australia, where groups can exchange ideas and plan new ways of working together in the future.
See you in February! Anarchist summer school organising collective
