Event description
Join us to build the BLC model of co-operative education for social transformation

About this Event

In the depth of our crisis comes opportunity for deep transformation. Transformation requires a process of unlearning and relearning - a process of education. BLC is, above all, an attempt to create a university for Bristol as a space of and for our transformation.

A year ago, a small group of people came together with a shared goal of creating a co-operative university in Bristol. Bristol Learning Co-op was born. There are now eight of us and we have been journeying together through the uLab process since last Summer. Out of this process, we have produced our draft Vision, Values, and Strategy document. We have also developed a prototype for a model of producing knowledge that recognises the whole body's need and capacity for learning and knowing. The development of this model will form the core part of the process of establishing and running BLC.

With this goal in mind, we invite you to a free workshop on Saturday, March 30th to join us in forming a Body. Our Body will be made up of Head, Hand, and Heart and we will ask the following four questions

Heart - What relationships will foster learning we need to transform our lives?

Head - What do we need to learn (and unlearn) to transform?

Hand - How do we realise our vision (through art, science, technology)?

Body - How do we take this forward?

If you have any ideas for workshop themes you would like to explore or lead on (or any other questions), please let us know at bristollearningcoop@gmail.com

We will also use the workshop to showcase our work over the previous year, to share our vision for BLC, and to invite you to join our process going forward.

We invite everyone who can to bring a dish to share for a pot luck lunch. We also invite everyone to join us for drinks after the workshop for a celebration of all our work so far.

Children are welcome and can participate. We can share the care of the little ones.

Please do only register if you fully intend to turn up and participate on the day.

Thank you

The BLC team
