DIY Anar-craft Market

Thursday, December 20, 2012 - 23:00 to Friday, December 21, 2012 - 02:00

This evening will be a chance to disrupt Consumer-istmas by selling, trading, or giving away stuff we've made instead of supporting the Christmas Industrial Complex. This is all about the D.I.Y. and the anti-capitalism aspects of sharing our skills with each other, and will feature jewelry, patches and zines, art-prints, sauerkraut, and much more, all created by folks in the community.

$1-$5 donation accepted at the door or sweaters and blankets for the cold season, no one turned away for lack of funds.

If you are interested in having a table, please email [email protected] for more info.

Rhizome Accessibility: There are no stairs to get into the building, and the main entrance is 38" wide, while the bathroom door is 26" wide. There are fully accessible washrooms down the street at the neighbouring coffee shops. See the full accessibility audit here:

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
