With curiosity, Multipöly is calling together the first Autumn School of Publishing. This is a meeting place for practitioners in the fields of text and art, graphic design, activism, research and other ___________ interested in self-organised publishing.


The theme of the Autumn School 2023 is Publishing and collaboration:

What have we learned from ___________?

Who and what do we need around us in order to publish?

What is left outside ___________?

What kind of collaboration do we dream of?

In what ways can publishing collaborate with other ___________?

How can collaboration ___________ the boundaries of publishing? How can publishing ___________ the boundaries of collaboration?


The Autumn School of Publishing will take place in Helsinki on the weekend of 28–29 October. Participants are invited to bring a question that is important to them and relates to the theme of publishing and collaboration. In addition, Multipöly will invite two extra guests to bring ___________.

The Spring and Autumn Schools of Publishing organised by Multipöly open up perspectives on publishing as a self-organised activity through specific themes, by way of discussions, proposals, ___________, making, and spending time together.

Multipöly's Spring and Autumn Schools serve as a starting point for experimental publications, “Papers”, which will be published afterwards. The aim of the Papers is to document and expand the ___________ that has been developed together and to share it with a wider audience. The production of the inaugural Papers will begin in the Autumn School and participants will be able to ___________.
