Towards Freedom: Reflections on the Free University

We launched the Free University of Western Sydney (FUWS) in April 2016 with the plan that after organising a few events, and connecting with others who had common principles, we could come together to take stock, and to think collectively & critically about the way forward.

‘Reflections’ is the time and place; a chance to reflect on decolonising knowledge movements & radical education movements locally and globally, on how FUWS can contribute to these movements, on what we’ve learnt so far, and on what we want the FUWS to be. You are all invited to this open discussion lead by fantastic and inspiring FUWS allies Fern Thompsett and Evelyn Araluen Corr.


This event is part of the Undercommoning Collective’s Global Autonomous Weekend of Action. We highly recommend you learn more at here.
