Also included is a word document with an example script outline for facilitators, as well as an outline of what circles are and aren't intended to do.

And Now For Something Competely Different: A Radical Primer


This is the first project of the Purple Daisy Distro. There are lots of awesome kids in Kelowna, so we thought we'd fuel their fire. 

This project was inspired by two other zines we found.  The Disorientation Manual for Evergreen State College (Olympia, Washington) and An Alternative Welcome Week Guide for McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario).  We lifted heavily from both.  So, thanks!  We hope it'll inspire other similar projects!
