Free Uni-What?

As part of its renowned squat scene and history of educational struggle, Barcelona is home to many free universities.

These are usually in squatted social centres (abandoned buildings occupied to meet the needs of the neighbourhood) and hold a range of activities, from tranvestite theatre to debates on primitivism. The aim of the project is to create a revolutionary space of learning where the difference between teacher and student is blurred and the subject matter, duration of the class, entry requirements etc. are chosen in self-organised groups interested in social change rather than by antiquated power structures serving only the needs of the rich.

The universities aim to provide a space for anyone interested where they can sit and chat without the obligation to buy anything, "a free space for all".
