Proposal review nights this Sunday and Tuesday

Do you have skills and knowledge that you would like to share with others in an alternative learning space?

Then how about facilitating your own learning group with The FreeSchool at the new Spartacus bookstore?

What you'd like to teach can be anything. Learning Groups provide opportunities for conversation and learning to take place in short bursts over a period of time. They start January 15-21 and run for 6-8 weeks. Where, when and how often groups meet depend on the course and are up to the facilitator of the learning group (the FreeSchool collective can help out).

Decide what you'd like to teach and write a brief outline (250-300 words) to bring to one of two proposal meetings to present to the collective (a small and non-intimidating bunch of people). The proposal review nights will take place this Sunday December 11, at 5pm, and Tuesday December 13 at 8pm, at Spartacus Books, 319 West Hastings, 2nd Floor.

At 11am I'll be interviewed on vancouver Co-op radio. The interview is about the reopening of Spartacus Books but they are going to talk a little bit about the FreeSchool, which is fantastic!

Let's hope lots of people hear about it and get involved!
