Permanent Autonomous Zone (PAZ) conference * Aug 31 - Sep 3 * Louisville, KY

Because those of us involved in or planning a Permanent Autonomous Zone (PAZ) need to begin a dialogue about creating them, running them, diversifying them, and sustaining them! We want to support alternative projects that are not motivated by profit or government forces.

--What is a PAZ?--
A non-authoritarian space, intentional community, or organization, such as an infoshop, community center, pirate or lpfm station, free or modern school, housing collective, squat, community garden, food co-op, etc.! Examples: Abc No Rio, Food Not Bombs, A-Zones, Wooden Shoe, Secret Sailor, the Brycc House, AK Press, Homes Not Jails, etc.

--So why a conference about it?--
Because those of us involved in or planning a PAZ need to begin a dialogue about creating them, running them, diversifying them, and sustaining them! We want to support alternative projects that are not motivated by profit or government forces.

--What will be discussed?--
How to begin specific kinds of PAZs, how to collectively organize, how to deal with and/or bypass legal restrictions, conflict resolution within PAZs, how to raise money or obtain other resources, how to find reliable participants, and other knowledge and skills needed to build a thriving PAZ!

--How much is it and what does that include?--
$15 or whatever you can afford. The entrance fee covers conference admission, housing (we will put you up!), food (vegan cuisine by Louisville Food Not Bombs), nightly entertainment (music and films), and childcare.

--Where will it be?--
At the Brycc House (www.brycchouse.org), a community center run by the collectives that use it, in Louisville, KY. L'ville Fun Fact: Louisville is within a 5 hours' drive of 80% of the US population.

--What do I do now?--
Go to the PAZ site to read more, submit your own workshops, join the email lists, and support us by spreading the word.
