The People’s Library – ALL DAY
WHO: The People’s Library (2013) is a highly collaborative and sustainable public art project featuring a library designed, built, and authored by community members. Utilizing hundreds of discarded books, participants pulp and create new sheets of paper. These sheets are bound to make blank books, which anyone may check out, author, and return to be included in the Main Branch of the Richmond Public Library’s permanent collection. The resulting installation contests hierarchical notions of history and offers sustainable, collective, and critical alternatives for the form and function of public art.
WHAT: Throughout the day participants can help make paper, silk screen the title pages, and bind the books that will be included in the library’s permanent collection.
Invited: Any and all
WHERE: The Makers Space
Zine-making – ALL DAY
WHO: Leila Prasertwaitaya is the Book Arts Specialist at VCU, where she wears a lot of purple and talks to classes about artists books and zines.
WHAT: Make zines! Supplies will be on-site.
Invited: Any and all
WHERE: The Makers Space

“The What Cheer? Brigade is a 19-piece brass band from Providence, RI, USA. Our sound is an aggressive mix of Bollywood, The Balkans, New Orleans, Samba and Hip-Hop, played with the intensity of metal. Requiring no amplification, we prove that great parties need no electricity. Our live shows defy boundaries, appealing equally to punks and farmers, old and young.”

and they will be playing the Wingnut Anarchist Collective during a potluck cookout on Saturday July 13th at 6pm!!!

This Spring the Wingnut Anarchist Collective got 2 bee hives (well built them), and got approximately 20,000 bees to go with them! We are super stoked about supporting these hard workers in a world less and less friendly to bees.

Thanks to the Ashland Beekeepers Association which is where one Wingnut took a beekeeping class, and thanks to 2 of our friends who are with the East Richmond Beekeepers association and helped out once we had the bees.

Here are 2 important/relevant links regarding bees that might interest you.

If you want to come say hi to our bees, just let us know. They are pretty chill.
