Contact us by April 20 if you want to draw art for the 2024 Slingshot Organizer — you do not have to live in California to be a co-conspirator. Around 30 artists from all over contribute to each edition.
Also please send additions and corrections for the radical contact list by May 19. We’re especially looking for contacts in under-represented areas, states and countries: cities that are NOT college towns particularly in the South and midwest — anywhere in Alabama, Hawaii, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming. Also especially spaces in Africa & the Middle East.
If you want to work on editing and adding to the radical historical dates, reach out between March 13 – April 20. We want to add protests or notable events from 2022 / 2023, older stuff we’re missing especially marginalized issues and movements, and we need help proofreading to try to locate and correct errors.
If you are in the Bay Area, join Slingshot for two art party weekends to put the organizer together by hand May 20-21 and May 27-28 at Long Haul 3124 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley. “It is like a 24/7 art rave — but geeky and free.” You can drop by for an hour or stay all day.
Selling the organizer enables Slingshot to print and distribute this newspaper for free. The 2024 organizer will be available sometime in August. If you know of a store in your area that could sell the organizer, let us know.
We have extra copies of the 2023 big spiral bound organizer — contact us if you can distribute a dozen or more copies for free to youth who wouldn’t otherwise have access — particularly in the midwest, south, and other areas outside of the hip urban bubble: email@example.com. We’ve already sent boxes of free organizers to youth in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota and South Dakota.
If you still want to buy the 2023 organizer, there is a list of bookstores and distributors at slingshotcollective.org.
