I will be holding a workshop at Sheffield Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday May 16, 2015.
The whole event runs from 10am to 6pm at Showroom Workstation, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 2BX. Details of workshop times will be posted on the bookfair website this week.
Entry is free and the day is organised by local activists and volunteers. Each year, the book fair brings together over 50 radical booksellers, distributors, independent presses, and political groups from around the country, and features books, pamphlets, zines, art, crafts and films.
It includes speakers, panels and workshops, and is followed by an evening social. Check the Facebook page for ongoing events leading up to the weekend.
My own workshop goes under the title “What is freedom?” and is very much linked to the contents of my new book Forms of Freedom.
I will be asking if freedom is simply not being behind bars, or if is there more to it than that. Can individual freedom exist without collective freedom? Or vice-versa? Where does our need for freedom come from?
Hope to see you there.
