Really FreeSchool

So some folks were opening up spaces around central London for some freeschool fun… see below for their first communique and check out their website for updates: http://reallyfreeschool.org/

They are now having a well deserved break!! so check this space for new adventures in the near future

__________________________________________

Surrounded by institutions and universities, there is newly occupied space where education can be re-imagined. Amidst the rising fees and mounting pressure for ‘success’, we value knowledge in a different currency; one that everyone can afford to trade. In this school, skills are swapped and information shared, culture cannot be bought or sold. Here is an autonomous space to find each other, to gain momentum, to cross-pollinate ideas and actions.

If learning amounts to little more than preparation for the world of work, then this school is the antithesis of education. There is more to life than wage slavery.

This is a part of the latest chapter in a long history of resistance. It is an open book, a pop-up space with no fixed agenda, unlimited in scope, This space aims to cultivate equality through collaboration and horizontal participation. A synthesis of workshops, talks, games, discussions, lessons, skill shares, debates, film screenings. Our time in this building is short, we have the next couple of weeks to zhumba, zhumba, zhumba.

Lets take education into our own hands. Propose a session, share your knowledge, extend your skillz…

  1. I have a friend who would like to know how to build a kiln. She is an artist and specialises in Ceramics. She is based in Hackney North London. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hey

    We have hosted kiln-making skill-sharing in the past, but we don’t have any events coming up…

    Might be worth trying to look on ‘just for the love of it’ here;

    you can search for skills you would like to learn to see if anyone in your local area is available to share their skills with you

    good luck!
