Description

Imagine an Antiuniversity NOW in Liverpool

With Anna B. Sexton and John Byrne

11am – 12pm Walking Tour through Liverpool

1pm – 2:30pm Working Lunch and Discussion

Meander through Liverpool’s lesser known topography leading to Time Tunnel events in the Fabric District. John Byrne and Anna B. Sexton co-lead a walk starting 11.00am outside John Lennon Building, Liverpool School of Art and Design, Liverpool John Moores University, 2 Duckinfield St, Liverpool, L3 5RD, to the Fashion Hub, The Tapestry, Fabric District. If the walk is not for you and you want to join the discussion only, meet at the Fashion Hub at 1pm.

The speculative walk will end at the Fahion Hub for a discussion about the Anti-University movement and ways we could plan some events in Liverpool between 9th - 15th June 2018.

Please bring some food to share and any ideas you have for an Antiuniversity event. The Antiuniversity is shaped by everyone who takes part, as organiser, host or guest.

Initiated in 2015, Antiuniversity Now was set up to reignite the 1968 Antiuniversity of London with the intention to challenge academic and class hierarchy and the exclusivity of the £9K-a-year-degree by inviting people to organise and share learning events in public spaces all over the country. In Liverpool, this collaborative experiment is being initiated by Time Tunnel in collaboration with Uses of Art Lab, ART Labs LJMU and artist Anna B. Sexton.

Free and open to all regardless of experience, background, age or qualification. Whether you have a passion, a hobby or enthusiasm for a certain topic we want to hear your ideas for talks, workshops, seminars, screenings and any other form of collective learning.

Antiuniversity operates with no budget – all events are free to attend and all organising is done on a voluntary basis.

Please book a place through Event Brite. The ticket can be for the walk and/or the working lunch.

Move your body through a speculative walk, open your mind through new conversations, see new sight lines of Liverpool and self organise ways to take alternative models of teaching, making and learning forward over lunch.

We are also calling out for local artists and creatives who are interested in documenting the processes of the talks, walk and shared food to start an Antiuniversity NOW Liverpool library at this, our first event.
