Northstar Infoshop is a radical bookstore, free school, and events space opening in Spring 2011. |
Our mission is to promote community independence, self-sustainability, and mutual aid, and to be a hub for grassroots projects and movements in Portland.
Radical politics, community activism, DIY and sustainable living, radical fiction, and more. Our store will feature a diverse array of titles, all with the common thread of changing the world.
We'll be hosting free workshops and skillshares for both kids and adults, organized and lead by people in our neighborhood. Screen printing, herbal remedies, peoples' history, storytelling circles, home brewing... The possibilities are infinite!
Northstar will be a vibrant fixture of our community. Grab a cup of coffee, read a zine, and meet other like minded people! We'll be planning several big events each month, including author/speaker tours, film showings, fundraisers for local collectives, puppet shows, discussion groups, book clubs, and tons more.
We're opening a mini-bookstore with our friends at Copyleft Books in June 2010!
Northstar Infoshop is teaming up with Copyleft Books to open up a brand new radical bookstore in Southeast Portland!
The new store will use the Copyleft Books name, but will be a mix of our unique personalities. Not-for-profit and collectively run, the store will feature sliding scale pricing and a wide range of books on radical politics, sustainable living, and DIY skills, as well as vintage sci-fi, early edition radical literature, and rare fiction.
This is an awesome opportunity for us to work together and unite our talents, while allowing both of us to grow and strengthen!
We're aiming to raise $5,000 by June 1st to help us open our brand new mini-bookstore. All it takes is 1000 people donating five dollars!
1000 people x $5 = a new rad bookstore in Portland!
If you appreciate our ideas and dreams, please consider donating. Northstar is going to be an amazing and vibrant hub for community power in Portland, and it's going to take the collective resources of our community to get us off the ground.
