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, or just come down to 5 Bloomsbury Square, though the door is on Bloomsbury Way, opposite Swedenbourg House.

    Hey there! Not sure if someone has already mentioned this but we’re hoping to maybe use the Free School space for distributing food on Saturday to support the student demo. Is there space? Facilities etc?

    We’d love it if we could join there….

    Also, we intend to clean up skipped fruit and veg on Thursday and Friday this week too and then make vegan flapjack as energy food. Is something else you tink you might be able to host??

    would love it if we could make something work – and you were willing, of course 🙂

    peace and solidarity
