We will not be hosting open hours or a communal dinner on Wednesday Feb 18. Instead you can find us at Balliceaux for the 8pm Rojonekku Haiku Hand to Hand combat competition. Or those words in some type of order.
Sorry!!! But got to take the time to poet about!

Starting in 2015, the Wingnut Anarchist Collective will be hosting Open Hours for use of the radical library, zine library, board games, musical instruments, computer etc. On Wednesday nights from 6pm – 9pm.

Additionally, the Wingnut will be hosting vegan communal dinners at the same time, with food ready to eat at 6:30/7pm.
The idea behind the suppers and new Open Hours is to build community, and share the burden of cooking.
We are asking that everyone who comes to these suppers bring a $3 dollar donation towards the food costs. If you can not afford cash, bartering with food stuffs, chore doing etc. Will be welcome.
We ask that everyone who comes to eat pitches in to wash the dishes.

We also need folks to RSVP the day before so we know how much food to make. 804 300 0023 is a number you can text, or email wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

If there are guest chefs who would like to bottomline a meal please let us know, that would be great!!!

The first dates will be:
Wed. Jan. 7
Wed. Jan. 14
Wed. Jan. 21
Wed. Jan. 28

Dont forget to RSVP!!!!!!

After a brief haitus, the Wingnut Anarchist Collective will again be hosting Open Hours on a weekly basis.

Our Open Hours are Wednesdays from 4pm to 9pm.

During Open Hours you can browse the Wingnut Radical Lending Library, check out books/return books, make a donation to our library collection, see our zines/magazines, get free literature or drop off some free literature, grab something from the free box or donate to it, play board games, use our computer/internet, drink coffee or tea, catch up on upcoming events, sit, read, relax, converse, pet dogs, etc.

Wingnut is a sober, all ages space.

Our guest policy, consent policy, allergies/accessibility, and directions/bus routes are all available on our website.

If you want to volunteer to bottomline Open Hours please email wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

Thanks to a generous donation of back issues of many different, awesome magazines, we now have over 100 new magazines in the Wingnut Radical Lending Library.

You can’t check these out, just because they would be too hard to replace, but you can come read them during Open Hours. We are also looking for volunteers for Open Hours- Wednesdays from 4-9pm and Fridays from 4-9pm.

The magazines include: Ms. Magazine, BUST, BITCH, Mother Earth News, Z magazine, Adbusters, Satya, Herbivore, Slingshot, Slug and Lettuce, Heart Attack, Clamor, Impact and more!

If you have anarchist/feminist/punk etc. magazines or zines you would like to see go to a good home, please be in touch!

Richmond has a new resource for folks in the City.

The Richmond Rag is “A free calendar of low cost or free events and collective DIY Spaces”.

It includes also a directory of radical spaces and organizations, as well as a list of places to get free or cheap healthy food (Food Not Bombs and local Farmer’s Markets).

Print copies are now available at the Wingnut for September.

You can access online also, and submit your events or organizations here: www.therichmondrag.blogspot.com

So submit your potlucks, protests, free classes, bike rides, meetings etc.!

Thanks to the folks who put this together, you know who you are!!!

Thanks to donations from several generous friends, and some thrift store purchases, we have added a good bunch of books to our library. Come by sometime to browse and check one out!

If you have books you think we might be interested in please feel free to come drop some off.

If you are interested in checking out these or other books, you can come by during Open Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm. 2005 Barton Avenue. Feel free to call ahead to confirm, as we sometimes cancel due to more pressing events. We are also interested in anyone looking to volunteer to host the Open Hours. 804 303 5449 or wingnut_collective@yahoo.com
