Recycled Market
Jayshree and Preeti spent 3 days in Bangalore's oldest waste market in Shivaji Nagar, where
you can find stolen automobile parts and recycled everythings. There is pride in work here
with the old folks and disdain amongst their progeny who want nothing to do with this 
business. This film is more than a superficial peek into this fascinating labyrinth of 
worthwhile junk.

DRAFT PROPOSED GUIDELINES for groups doing events

forthcoming...write away comrades... • BOOKING and PUBLICITY • RESPONSIBILITIES • WHAT WE CAN PROVIDE • CONTACTS etc


Flyers for events organised (by people external to the collective) that need to be printed should be sent to blackfrog email at least 2 weeks (10 days??) before event. mark or alex will work out a favourable price and print.

It should be made clear to whoever is organising event that flyers will have to be paid for, and that they are responsible for dishing them out. there's no point printing flyers if the event is in a couple of days

Suggestions for Publicising Events

Places to put leaflets down in. Locally is always better but for certain events it might be worth putting stuff in other areas. For example, a gig is worth advertising in London record stores etc.

  Not everything listed is guaranteed to want your flyer but it’s always about asking nicely. Local shops are often happy to put up posters in their window if it’s a community event. It’s just about asking and establishing a relationship with them.

If you know of other places, then email them to us and we will add to this list
