North East Radical History - Storytelling

Sat 1 June // 12:00 / Café

Tickets: NA

As part of the Anarchist Festival 2019, the North East Anarchist Group and the Canny Little Library join forces to organise a two day event about the Radical History of the North East in the Star & Shadow cinema. 

Saturday we start off with an open storytelling event. Come and share your story about the radical history of the North East. Stories can take different forms: poetry, spoken word, a song, a performance, an artwork, a section from a book, you name it! Themes can cover different aspects of the North East’s radical history: workers’ struggles, black history, feminist activism, environmentalism, queer/LGBTQ*history, et cetera. 

The weekend will also be an opportunity to connect past and contemporary struggles, to network between different initiatives and to get involved! The library will be open on both days with a special collection of books and zines covering the radical history of the North East. The Star & Shadow café will be open, providing hot drinks and cake.
