MAY DAY (Thursday, May 1) 2014 is just around the corner, and Free University is planning to host another collective experiment in free, radical education in Madison Square Park, NYC. We invite you to teach a class, lead a workshop, facilitate a discussion, or conduct a performance at the Free University, where everyone is a teacher and a student. If you teach a class on May 1st, please consider moving it to Free University.
We invite you to create a poster or meme of your vision for FREE EDUCATION. We will share these widely online with your attribution, and do a small poster print run for May Day. Send your work to FreeUniversityNYC@gmail.com
The Free University of New York City is an experiment in radical community education and an attempt to create education as it ought to be, building on the historic tradition of movement freedom schools. First conceived as a form of educational strike in the run up to May Day, 2012, Free University has subsequently organized numerous days of free crowd-sourced education in parks, public spaces, museums, and subway stations in New York City. Together we will once again create a place where everyone interested in or affiliated with grassroots activism in NYC can come together, learn about each others’ initiatives, and share old wisdom and new developments in radical politics.
