Education Forum

Saturday 22nd January 12.30pm-5pm at Partick Burgh Halls

Right to the City Forum has been running events since last summer exploring ideas of community activism, spaces for discussion and our right to define our own lives.

This time, as an Education Forum, Right to the City will be focusing on the current education movement and its broader implications. The local and the transnational, the current delivery of education and potential changes, debt as a way of disciplining people, and whatever other ideas you wish to bring.

This event is open to all with an interest.

Partick Burgh Halls is just off Dumbarton road, Partick, only two minutes from Partick rail and Subway lines: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=55.87129974%2C-4.30905008

This event is hosted by Strickland Distribution http://www.strickdistro.org/.

“The recent response to the marketisation of higher education has given a voice and a collective identity to a discontent stretching beyond funding constraints. It is now time to respond as well as create, looking for new action and dialogue for the future. We want to open up debate, not close it down.’

        This event is open to all with an interest. It is an opportunity to meet other like-minds to discuss the deep political implications of how the education system manages potential.

        We are making an attempt ‘re-imagining the school and the university’ – fighting for what education should be not just preserving what it currently is.

        “The question of what kind of city we want cannot be divorced from that of what kind of social ties, relationship to nature, lifestyles, technologies and aesthetic values we desire. The right to the city is far more than the individual liberty to access urban resources: it is a right to change ourselves by changing the city.” David Harvey
