Alternative Welcome Week 2010 – Programming call-out

For the first time ever, OPIRG McMaster will be having an Alternative Welcome Week from September 13-19.  Alternative Welcome Week will be educating and agitating on themes of Environmental and Social Justice. There will be adventures, workshops, discussions, performances,and joyous times had by all. We are still working on programming and are looking for ideas and proposals. If you or your group/organization have an idea for a workshop, performance, or event and would like to be part of the week’s activities, please contact

Themes that we are currently exploring for the week are:
-Indigenous sovereignty/anti-racism, anti-colonialism, anti-apartheid
-Environmental Justice, local and global action for the planet
-Economic Justice/Gentrification, Sex workers, migrant workers, poverty and labour
-Gender Justice/Women’s, Queer and Trans Issues
-Transforming the University – Challenging the Academic Industrial Complex, McMaster-specific issues

We are open to all sorts of ideas, so get creative!  Soft deadline for proposals is July 30th.
OPIRG McMaster follows anti-oppressive principles in our work and programming proposals should reflect this.
