Thinking about liberating education!

Click to print the poster PDF

How can we overcoming the domesticating and confining education we experience everyday in our major institutions and media? What does a truly liberating education look like and how do we engage with it?  Come and share your thoughts and experiences.

In our contemporary culture, learning how to learn and how to think independently is just as important as mastering any particular technical skill.

And to learn the things we do need, we need to learn to find (or create) opportunities and spaces outside of the traditional institutions and approaches that have ‘taught’ us how to be ourselves.

This event will offer the opportunity to explore ways of learning – based on our experiences and our aspirations – and discuss what is being done (or could be) in the community to facilitate an ongoing connected process of individual and community learning.

Edge-u-cation is being held in dozens of cities throughout the world as part of the Evolver.net ‘spores’ network:

Organizing for Justice is a grassroots collective and collaborative community based effort in the Outaouais aimed at creating an activist community of groups, organizers, activists and revolutionaries.

Our main goal is to unite and create a free space for all to share knowledge, skills, experience, to educate and to learn in the realms of social, economic and environmental justice and healthy, sustainable community building.

Organizing for justice hopes to act as a flashpoint to gather groups and individuals alike to discuss vision and strategy as well as skills and tools for effective organizing. Most importantly, the focus is on relationship building between groups and individuals, networking and ultimately unifying those working towards common goals.

Being a collaborative and justice oriented initiative focused on growing and building solidarity within the activist community; we wish to invite all groups and individuals to help shape, define and participate in this year’s Organizing for Justice conference. Make your voices heard!

We wish to get as much input as possible to make this process a success.

The critical function of Organizing for Justice is to provide a platform with which to educate and organize for what our communities demand. Please fill out this survey and let us know what you would like to see/do/learn, and if you’d like to help out. Your survey answers shape what happens at the conference. >> Link: http://bit.ly/bYkrgM

You can also participate hands-on in the planning. We are holding an open planning meeting coming up on the evening of Thursday Sept 2nd – and you are invited!
>> Thurs Sept 2, 7:00pm at Jack Purcell Community Centre, near corner of Elgin and Gilmour

Remember, this is by and for the community. So get involved!

Solidarity,
