Update: due to COVID 19, Free School will be on hold until further notice. Proposals will still be accepted and filed for future dates.

Free School is an ad hoc series of workshops, talks and field trips hosted by anyone on any topic (barring anything deemed hateful or harmful). Facilitated by experts and non-experts alike and embracing experience-based, self taught and traditional knowledges, Free School welcomes community members to share what they know with others in an informal environment, celebrates lifelong learning and seeks to build new interests and connections. Previous workshops have covered topics including: How to Take the Perfect Selfie, Kulintang, Urban Foraging and How to Care for Houseplants. 

Free School facilitators receive a small honorarium as well as a small material budget, if appropriate for the proposed session. 

Submissions will be responded to within two weeks. Questions can be directed to jacqui@lakeshorearts.ca.
