Guelph Free School Re-opens for 2008/2009
Saturday, October 4, 20089 Comments
The Guelph Free School is free to attend, as well as free and open in the way it's structured. Students are not forced to learn anything or given tests, and teachers/facilitators are seen as resources of knowledge rather than as authoritarian figures. The classes are discussion based, so that everyone can contribute knowledge, experience and expertise.
Classes take place all across Guelph. We try to locate as many as possible in
free, accessible public spaces. Without any real bureaucracy, at our core we're just a group of people who decide to organize, promote and facilitate courses on topics of our choosing. From vegan cooking, to peak oil, to self defense workshops; feminist discussion groups, to homebrewing.
You can access a list of classes over the past few years here: http://www.anarchistu.org/cgi-bin/twiki/view/Guelph/CoursesOffered
The GFS puts out a call-out each semester requesting new class proposals, anyone is welcome to enage! Email with an idea, or outline of your idea, and we can help you find a space and aid in publicizing your class.
