"Subtleties of Resistance" Free University at Kara Walker's
A Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby
These site-specific workshops positioned at the intersection of education, art and activism covered diverse themes ranging from gentrification to women of color's participation in social, economic, and cultural life.
The Free University of New York City is an experiment in radical education building on the historic tradition of movement freedom schools. The project was born out of the conviction that the current system of higher education is as unequal as it is unsustainable, while vast sources of knowledge across communities are all-too-hidden and undervalued. First conceived as a form of educational strike in the run up to May Day 2012, the Free University has since organized numerous days of free crowd-sourced education in community centers, museums, parks, public spaces, and subway stations in New York City.
