Fort Collins Free School

Information

Fort Collins Free School

Free School is an opportunity for people of all identities to come together to share knowledge in a non-commercial, decentralized setting to strengthen community. Education is (or can be) a way to achieve transformation, equality and freedom. Everybody has something to teach and something to learn. By stepping out of our traditional teacher/student roles, we can strengthen self-reliance and the DIY (do-it-yourself) ethic. By sharing our skills and talents, as well as knowledge and information usually only accessible in expensive institutional settings, we can break away from the commodification and hierarchy of education, and start building a more interdependent, interdisciplinary way of leaning as a process of transforming ourselves and our society.

The history of Free School in Fort Collins has varied over the decades depending on the fluctuation of activist activities in the area. Long standing groups like Uproot have kept it alive in Fort Collins over the years. The subject matter changes from week to week. We’ve hosted lots of classes ranging from Veganism 101, Marxism, and Sewing to Non-Invasive Birth Control and Introductory Sign Language.

We have both a website containing a some resources on how to set up a free school (which we'll promote on our calendar) and a facebook group where you can promote your events that align with Free School ethics.
