The Sheffield Social Centre Collective is organising a Free School, "Prepare for a future without oil or governments..." to be held in Sheffield over the weekend of 8th - 10th October 2010.

You might have noticed that our everyday lives involve being bombarded from all angles by people whose primary desire in life is to make money. This can have one or two downsides: the creation of a culture in which happiness and well-being are measured in pounds and pence, the systematic sacrifice of planet earth in the name of business, and the life of a person coming to be quantified in terms of their financial worth instead of their intrinsic value as a thinking, breathing human being.

For a weekend in October people in Sheffield will be coming together to push back against this tide of consumption and money-making by creating a space for the free sharing of skills, ideas, knowledge and entertainment.

Between the 8th and 10th of October, in reclaimed space in our city centre, come along to the Sheffield free school to learn the ins-and-outs of consensus decision-making, what anarchism can mean in practice, get help fixing your bicycle, discuss how to take direct action against the perpetrators of injustice, discover how to live (nearly) for free, or maybe even come and share a skill of your own.

If you'd like to help organise the Sheffield Free School or have an idea for an event you'd like to run at it, come along to the next planning meeting, the time and location of which you'll find at or email .

The free school is being organised by members of the Sheffield Social Centre project, which aims to establish a permanent space for non-hierarchical, non-discriminatory and anti-capitalist activity in Sheffield.
