****Call out for proposals for the Free University of Warwick****

Welcome to the Free University of Warwick. We are currently recruiting.

Starting on February 22nd, the Free University of Warwick will be offering workshops, courses, classes, and film screenings

We are looking for people who want to help us create a university space outside of the neoliberal boundaries of Warwick Ltd. Our university is free of fees. You will not be examined or assessed. We have no Vice Chancellors, no middle managers. Instead, we are democratically run by staff, students, and community members who believe a better university is possible.

Whether you are a smoking salsa dancer, a bread baker, a quadratic formula master, a lover of film, a DJ, or an expert in property law, the EP Thompson seminar room is open to you.

While we’re happy for you to give a talk, we’re especially interested in alternative methods of teaching that break the boundaries of our established curriculums, departmental divisions, and classroom hierarchies. We want students to teach and teachers to learn.

The Free University of Warwick will be open from 3pm on everyday of the strike for workshops, teach-ins, film screenings, and other forms of collaborative learning. You don’t need a degree to come and teach, just enthusiasm and a desire to share. If you are interested in participating, please send an email letting us know what you want to do and how much time you need:

In Warwick’s own words, “We are a place of possibility. We are always looking for new ways to make things happen.”
