Friends and comrades,
We hereby invite you to participate in the Zagreb Anarchist Book Fair (ZASK), which will be held from the September 30th to October 1st, 2023 in Zagreb. Like other fairs of this type, it will serve as a platform for getting to know each other, networking, distributing materials and sharing experiences in the joint struggle. In addition to visiting the fair, we invite you to participate in its programme in your own way, which you can read more about below. In addition, all the technical information that you may be interested in will be listed below.
We will provide all participants of the fair with a vegan meal (Hrana, a ne oružje Zagreb – Food not bombs Zagreb) and we will try to provide accommodation. Accommodation will be organized at Zagreb squats, private accommodation with comrades from Zagreb, and recommendations for alternative accommodation options, such as hostels, will be offered.
If possible, we will try to jointly cover travel expenses. The fair is organized horizontally according to libertarian principles, and therefore financed on the basis of donations and benefits. Additional covering of travel expenses can be discussed via e-mail.
The complete programme of the fair is being prepared, and the final programme depends on the inclusion of potential participants. We will publish the full programme when everyone gets back to us with their suggestions. The tentative programme includes the distribution of materials during both days of the indoor fair, a general assembly, discussions and workshops, an antifa self-defense workshop, an informal get-together on Saturday evening and an organized final concert on Sunday evening at the Močvara club. You will be informed about the final programme, schedule and all locations later by email. The programme will also be available on the website.
The fair will be held in the large and small halls of Centre for Independent Culture and Youth Pogon Jedinstvo at the address Trnjanski nasip bb, 10000 Zagreb, geographical coordinates 45°47’28.4″N / 15°58’35.3″E, right next to the Sava river.
We invite you all to participate in this year’s fair in any way you can or want. If you want to participate, click on the Participation category on the main menu and please fill out the online application form. Below are the ways you can participate in the fair:
