GAS will be hosting a Book Fair in March, and we are excited to get the Ball rolling already with some great stalls already lined up. If you are interested in running a stall please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dream is for the bookfair to reflect the ethos of GAS, non-hierarchical organising and the diversity of the people and organisations who use GAS, but also about things unique to Glasgow.
If anyone is interesting in joining in with an organising group we would welcome that, and suggestions for stalls, speakers, meetings and workshops would be great. So far we have suggested workshops from Herbal Unity ( navigating the NHS workshop for people caught up in the immigration system), a printing workshop, and badge making. We want to get away from some of the habitual things you get at Anarchist/Radical type bookfairs that have made them not very diverse in the past.
Given recent events at these bookfairs we want to stress here at GAS that we don't support transphobia and are explicitly in support of reform to the gender recognition act and of people's right to self identify their gender.
We are looking for volunteers for the supervising a creche, the social in the evening and the food at the event.
