Free Skool is taking a Summer Break! Yes, it's true! This summer there will be no Free Skool calendar, because a lot of the Free Skool collective is going on varied summer travels. Therefore, we decided to take the summer off (or rather it is on for travel and adventure). Come fall we may well be back again (time will tell).

Free Skool is taking a Summer Break!

Yes, it's true! This summer there will be no Free Skool calendar, because a lot of the Free Skool collective is going on varied summer travels. Therefore, we decided to take the summer off (or rather it is on for travel and adventure). Come fall we may well be back again (time will tell).

Of course, we at Free Skool very much appreciate the classes that folks have contributed to our many calendars, and if you had a class that you were considering for the summer quarter, we encourage you to do it anyways! Yeah, that's right! Make your own flyers, post to http://www.indybay.org/santacruz/, and there are other places you can also post public service announcements. We at Free Skool can also send announcements out on our email list at times, but don't rely on this solely, as I can't promise we will be able to check the email account in a timely way (freeskool-sc [at] lists.riseup.net).

All we in the collective did was to gather class info, make a calendar and distribute it (yeah, that does add up to a lot of work), but it is you and others that provide the substance to the calendars. So, i hope to see some of you at your own indie-offering this summer. I'll keep my eyes and ears open.

The What-and-Why of Free Skool Santa Cruz:

A radically different approach to living and learning, Free Skool Santa Cruz is a decentralized grassroots educational project with classes held in homes, social spaces, and parks. It is an opportunity to learn from each other and share what we know, with a focus on self-reliance, community, do-it-yourself culture and creating a new and beautiful world.

The project strives to blur the lines between teacher, learner, and organizer while posing a direct challenge to dominant institutions and coercive power structures. Part of creating a new world is resistance to the old one. Through Free Skool, we strive to change the way we learn, teach, and relate to each other.

Love,
Free Skool Santa Cruz
