The Call has been sent out and has ended up places we never dreamed it would. Many people have contacted us who can’t join us in London but who are involved in kindred projects in this country and in others. Amongst them are…
The Experimental College of the Twin Cities http://excotc.org/
The Free Culture Forum in Barcelona from the 29th Oct – 1st Nov http://fcforum.net/
The University of Openess http://uo.twenteenthcentury.com/index.php/Main_Page

The London Free University
We believe there can be no right to annex thought and learning, to erect concrete buildings in which to lock up knowledge.
Their universities create obedience, uniformity of thought and docility. Beyond their gates is our intellectual freedom – within them are the resources we need. Until these gates are opened for all we shall remain alienated from each other and from our futures. We want to question access to knowledge, the uniformity of success and production, and to experiment with alternatives and the redistribution of knowledge. We invite you to cross these borders and see where we can go with the freedoms we create for ourselves.
We’re starting by doing, by learning how to hack, pirate and redistribute
knowledge whilst building alternatives. Join us in this exciting new project and come to a planning meeting at LARC, 21st October, 6pm.
If education is not a commodity then can it be stolen?
