Activist Communique: Free'scool Fall Workshop Series - Facilitation, Popular Education, and More!

The Deets:

Saturday September 22 and Saturday September 29, 2012

707 Dundas Street West,

Toronto, ON

 

The Call Out:

On September 22nd, and 29th, Free’scool will be running a workshop series. The series is designed to enhance people’s personable skills that will enable them to teach, organize, and interact peacefully, democratically, and with mutual respect and accountability. Democratic, community-based education is a largely new concept for a lot of people, and while there are a lot of people who want to teach and organize within it, they don’t necessarily know what that kind of education looks like in practice, because... they’ve never experienced it.

This series is for those interested in teaching, but unsure about how to do so in popular/democratic education settings; teachers who have begun to teach at free’scool and want to further develop their teaching skills; and for organizers, educators, and community members from all areas who want to develop their democratic facilitation skills.

This is a free workshop series; however, we ask that all those coming give something back; whether it’s 10 dollars, doing dishes at the workshop, poster/flyering for the workshop series, bringing a gift for a facilitator, an hour of childcare at the series, etc. We especially would love some help with food: if you can volunteer to make a dish, or donate some groceries it would be much appreciated.

We ask that if you plan on coming to the workshop, please register using the form below, so we can get the right amount of supplies and food.

Here is the schedule, workshop descriptions coming very soon.
