My name is Isobel Manley. I'm just posting up some information about a new organisation being set up in Hull. We need volunteers! Tasks involve anything from delivering workshops, designing promotional material, handing out flyers, putting up posters, booking halls/rooms,organising fundraising events, attending committee meetings, whatever, you want to do!
Let me explain a bit about what we do:
We are FreeSchool Hull.
A FreeSchool is a non-hierarchical skillsharing network through which people can share skills and knowledge in an informal and autonomous environment, through the delivery of talks and workshops.
FreeSchool Hull will be a completely grassroots, collective effort to create an independent, communal learning opportunity, away from bureaucratic regulation. Classes will be egalitarian, informal and autonomous, and promote an alternative approach to learning and living.
Classes/workshops will be held entirely for free and are open to anyone of any age/ability.
Classes we hope to provide include:
Activism Cinema & Literature
Make your own clothes
Book groups (fiction/non-fiction)
Cooking on a budget
Permaculture for beginners
Introduction to Anarchism
Introduction to Buddhism
Herbal medicine making
Crafts of all sorts
and many more!
FreeSchools promote self-reliance, critical consciousness, and personal growth, helping people create living connections between ourselves, our community, and the earth. FreeSchools aim to provide people with skills not only to survive within the institutional framework imposed but to thrive without and beyond it.
Join us on Facebook (FreeSchool Hull) invite your friends, spread the word.

Thankyou so much for reading, and best wishes.
