Over 40 stalls will be available in the main hall. Independent booksellers, zinesters, activist groups and other radical enterprises promoting their ideas and merchandise are encouraged to participate by booking a stall. Stalls are allocated on a first-come basis, so book in early to save a spot!
Note: If you cannot afford to pay for a stall, and are a not-for-profit group or low-waged individual, we will consider waiving these fees and accepting a donation instead – just get in touch with us.
Stalls are 1.8m x 0.75m (table provided). Please book ASAP as stalls will be allocated in strict order of payment.
We are a not-for-profit bunch of volunteers and all money received will go on venue, equipment hire, and advertising (postcards, café posters, larger posters on campuses and around the city). We are committed to financial transparency and you can view our projected budget on the About us page.
How to pay for your stall:
There are two steps:
- Please make a direct deposit into our CUA bank account ($50 or $60, but more is always welcome!): Name: A Melbourne Events, BSB: 814-282, Account: 31139932 (Alternately send a cheque payable to A Melbourne Events directly to the bank with our BSB and Account numbers written on the reverse side. The address is: CUA, PO Box 100, Brisbane QLD 4001.)
- Drop us an email using the contact form to let us know you’ve paid. We will then confirm via email or telephone and allocate your stall.
Workshops & Skillshares:
The workshop programme has been finalised will be available soon.
Legacy workshops blurb:
Workshops and skillshares are being planned in different time slots and will be held throughout the day in different rooms. Groups or individuals with ideas in line with our principles are encouraged to participate by proposing a workshop or a skillshare. These are discussed and agreed on by the collective, and all proposals must be received no later than 15th July. Workshops & skillshares are free but slots often fill up early, so send in your proposal as soon as you can!
To submit a proposal, contact us by 15th July. We will need a title, the name/s of the presenter/s and a short description.
Workshop slots are one hour, so workshops should be a maximum of 50 minutes long. You can also consider merging your workshop topic with another related topic, or having a panel discussion with several different presenters. We prefer workshops to be at least half open discussion – the more participatory the better.
Please consider whether your workshop or skillshare will be kid-friendly, kid-inclusive, or accessible to parents with kids, and for which ages the content will be accessible/understandable. Please send us this info along with your workshop proposal, so parents and kids can plan their day accordingly.
We may have opportunity for multimedia to be used in workshop presentations, such as audio-visual elements or Skype calls. If you require this for yours, please contact us!
