The projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project explores
the long held tradition of bookmobiles as traveling libraries that
promote the distribution of information.The BOOKMOBILE travels across
the United States and Canada in a vintage airstream trailer visiting
a variety of communities. Our annual traveling collection of approximately
300 book works range from handmade and one-of-a-kind to photocopied
and small press publications.
The projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project is
a community arts initiative founded by the Bookmobile collective,
a diverse group of emerging North American artists and community
activists. Our mandate is to fuse artistic production with political
activism and community organizing. The collective consists of a
fluctuating group of dedicated volunteers, coordinators, jury organizers,
and tour guides. Although the project is based primarily in Montreal,
QC, and Philadelphia, PA, collective members reside in various cities
throughout North America.
