Radical Sunday School

Short url: 

https://squ.at/r/9fqf

As students are protesting the university, calling for the democratisation, decarbonisation, and decolonisation of their education, the Radical Sunday School is opening weekly to discuss the failings of our current educational system and imagine new ways to learn. As Paulo Freire believed, education can be an emancipatory tool, liberating consciousness, and widen the options for action - and of course, it can take place anywhere, and at any time. In this 'school', everyone, students and not-students, is invited to participate. We will decide on the content and form freely. The options for things to discuss are endless: What is the point of today's educational system? What is it promising, what does it deliver? How is it funded? What counts as education? What would an abolition of the university entail? How do you actually decolonise education? Or democratise it? What is the history of the university? How do fossil fuels inform our beliefs on learning? Let's follow whatever sounds interesting and worthwhile - whatever seems important enough to be learned.

This is not intended to be a course that you would have to follow all the way through. Jump in and out whenever you like. Sessions will be held every Sunday, except for every second Sunday of the month (when Joe's Garage is having an open assembly). Come through, and let's educate ourselves in ways not possible inside the silly institution that is called university.
