: Free Skool Santa Cruz is an interactive, decentralized model for learning - without the limitations of hierarchy and the sterile institutional environment of a University or formal school. It is an attempt to de-school ourselves and to learn from one another the skills necessary to transform society and challenge oppressive systems.
In addition to discussions, events, and classes, Free Skool Santa Cruz has a strong focus on skills. It's a skillsharing network aimed to generalize skills and confidence. We seek to provide an environment that inspires individuals and facilitates the exchanging of tools they need to create their lives on their own terms. We aim to offer a network that supports peoples capacity to live more autonomously and build communities that are not limited by the constrains of outside (or inside) institutions.
In an increasingly complex world, with people specialized into specific and limited positions of employment and activity, we remain largely dependent on a social order destined to self destruct while our lives are becoming increasingly monitored and controlled. We aim to give people skills not just to survive within the institutional framework imposed but to thrive without and beyond it.
Who Are We?
Free Skool is a completely grassroots effort, a collection of folks who decided to act collectively and autonomously to create a skill-sharing network, a school without institutional control. It is your opportunity to learn from others and share what you know, to help create self-reliance, vital communities, and beauty in the world. If you are willing to learn, teach, or help organize Free Skool, then the short answer is you.
We are all students and we are all teachers.Contact info
