A Day of (A) THEORY & DIY Skill Shares

In The Works presents: A Day of (A) THEORY & DIY Skill Shares!

As part of the 2013 8 Days of Anarchy, ”A Day of (A) Theory & DIY Skill Shares” will aim to retain, deepen and strengthen the subversive and dangerous texts, ideas and ways of being and doing that anarchist thought and practice make possible.

The day will include tabling from various anarchist publishers and thinkers, discussion relevant to struggle in our current post-modern trajectory, and craft presentations. If you have an interest in tabling, talking, or presenting something practical drop us a line!

All tables and speakers/discussions will use In The Works event space for free/donation only. All donations received from this event will go to the Free Jeremy Hammond! legal fund. Jeremy Hammond is a 28 year old anarchist and web-developer from Chicago who is being accused of hacking Strategic Forecasting(Stratfor), and publishing this information via the website Wikileaks.org, as the ‘Global Intelligence Files’.

3) 240-340PM: Anarchism & Education by Autumn

  • Do you like to learn new things? Did you feel like your learning was done in spite of schooling? Is there a difference between schooling and learning? Anarchist scenes have a lot of work to do in valuing and creating spaces where knowledge is produced and shared, but many times they offer some intriguing inspiring insights into how we start building the world we wish to see. Learn about the history and present of anarchist and anti-colonial models/ practices of knowledge production as well as its applications in our communities here.

4) 345-500PM: After Occupy? Anarchy! by Doug

  • After the occupy movement, new struggles have developed against sexual violence, environmental exploitation, and native sovereignty. But as quickly as they are formed, these struggles often are recuperated back into single issue demands and stripped of their disruptive qualities and potentially revolutionary goals. This workshop will look how anarchists can intervene in these moments, with both ideas, actions, and critiques. It will also look at how genuine class struggle in both the era of the depression in the 1930’s as well as during the civil rights struggles of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s were also recuperated as a means to gain better insight into our current political situation.


On Saturday: Located at KidPOWER Park on Hoff Street, between Station 40 and ITW.

In The Works is an anticapitalist and antiauthoritarian events and (anti)art collective that seeks total liberation.
