The newly revived and under new (no)management Free Skool Olympia has come out with its February calendar of classes!
Free Skool Olympia is an autonomous, all ages, egalitarian, volunteer-run collective which works to offer a wide range of workshops, classes, trainings, and skill shares freely to the community. The Free Skool offers a direct challenge to educational, economic, and social systems that oppress and divide our communities by providing vibrant alternatives to those systems and safe places for them to thrive so that we may begin to imagine and build a truly free world.
This month features classes on:
As well as a Black History Reading Group, White Privilege Reading Group, film showings, a Stitch 'N' Knit circle, and a Theatre of the Oppressed troupe!
All classes are absolutely free. The whole month's calendar, which includes descriptions, times, and locations is attached to this post!
Child care will be provided at classes on request. If you have child care or accessibility needs, contact the facilitator of the class you'd like to attend.
To find out more about the Free Skool, you can come to our general meetings every Sunday, 2:00pm at Media Island (816 Adams St. SE) or find us on Facebook. To contact us, e-mail olyfreeskool (at) riseup (dot) net
