Making Culturally Relevant Books Accessible with Speed and Elegance

Hopscotch Reading Room (Erin Honeycutt and Siddhartha Lokanandi) plans and builds a collective bootleg through both serendipitous and intended encounters. It is open to the general public and also counts on specially invited guests from the independent publishing scene in the Netherlands and other places. Bring your own culturally relevant publication for bootlegging. Expect chance operations to determine an unexpected course. Trust that the copy machine will match our temperament and speed. Any (machine) errors to troubleshoot are a message the book itself sends us regarding concrete wishes for its afterlife. 

Wednesday 24 MAY –Friday 26 MAY 2023

12:00–18:00 hrs


Collective vegan lunch from 12:00–13:00 hrs.

The meal is included in the enrollment fee. The abundance and variety of the menu depend on the luck of the b.ASIC a.CTIVIST k.ITCHEN’s dumpster dive.


Registration on individual days is welcome. You can register your attendance here.

Trainer’s Notes

Bring an essay (max. 30 pages) that you think is “culturally relevant.” The essay can be in print or as a digital file.
