PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY
We would like to officially invite you to volunteer and/or submit a proposal for a workshop or presentation at the Sixth Annual International A World Beyond Capitalism Conference, 'Africa Needs Free Justice.'
It is a Mobile Event and Intentional Community created for the Design, Collaboration and Implementation of Multicultural, Multimedia, Social Justice Projects and Groups. It is a Training Grounds and Theory-Meets-Action Camp for Social Justice Organizers And Those Who Desire To Become Social Justice Organizers.
In order to welcome proposals from people of all backgrounds we have four methods of submitting proposals for workshops or presentations. We ask that you Read the 'about' page on our website thoroughly to understand what our conference is about before submitting proposals.
#1. Submit a proposal with your name, workshop title, workshop description and a small paragraph about yourself. If you have an online video, we will also place short online video descriptions on our website as well.
#2. We also welcome 'symposiums.' The Word 'Symposium' has come to refer to any educational conference, or a style of educational style characterized by an openly discursive format, rather than a lecture and question–answer format. Please feel free to reate a symposium topic or choose 10-20 titles of topics from our list of over 400 symposium topics found here: http://africaneedsfreejustice.weebly.com/s
#3. Do you have a group project or multimedia project that you need help with? Need a website? Need a short video made? Want to learn how to create a podcast/online radio station for your group? Need to learn how to use social media effectively for your group? Need to create an online fundraising project for your group? Please submit your name, multimedia project title, project description and a small paragraph about yourself and members of your group so that we can help you and match you with our Start-to-Finish project team and volunteers to help you complete that project free of charge. Learn more here: http://africaneedsfreejustice.weebly.com/s
#4. In the event that you cannot attend, we would be happy to accept a 10 minute video workshop from you to add to our series. It might help bring greater publicity to your project. We simply ask that you please use professional audio recording equipment and High Definition video as we have discovered that many media outlets that we will send the films strictly require it. We will send the video to film festivals around the country and also to Free Speech TV. Free Speech TV reaches 30 million U.S. homes, broadcasting full-time on DISH Network (channel 9415) and part-time on 200 community cable affiliates.
It started in 2005 as a 3 day event in one city and has grown every year. In 2011 it will run from July 2011 through August 2011 for a total of 33 days spanning three cities: Seattle, Washington, Olympia, Washington and Portland Oregon. We plan to videotape 10 minute segments from a large number of workshops, social justice musicians and hands-on-action camps this year to create several full length, 2 hour documentaries of the conference.
The Sixth Annual International A World Beyond Capitalism Conference, 'Africa Needs Free Justice' conference provides free admission and free food.
We would be happy to provide you with housing with one of our volunteers while you are here.
Keep up the great work everyone!
Love, peace, solidarity,
Organizing Collective of the 2011 Sixth Annual International A World Beyond Capitalism Conference, 'Africa Needs Free Justice.'
