QAW Download Library
We are now collecting PDFs of significant and difficult-to-find publications from the last fifty years, focusing on urgency, radicality, and liberation. These files are posted openly for free download, with links to the source material, if known. If you’d like to suggest a PDF to the Download Library, please send us a note!
The PVD Tool Sharing Library is a volunteer project created and managed by QAW community member Hannah Suzanna. It’s an experiment in communal resource sharing; all of the items in the collection are stored in homes and work spaces in the Providence, RI area and available for free use. Click through to browse the tools and email email@example.com if you’d like to add a tool to the collection (non-traditional/fun/weird/queer tools definitely encouraged)!
