The ANTIUNIVERSITY NOW! festival
is a collaborative experiment to revisit and reimagine the Antiuniversity of 1968 in a weekend of events inspired by the spirit, people and activities of the Antiuniversity of East London.
It will take place on 20-22 November 2015 in a wide range of venues across the country and will be open to everyone.
The ANTIUNIVERSITY NOW! festival invites you to run a course / workshop / study session / group discussion / guided walk or any other type of collective knowledge sharing in a space of your choice – anywhere from a local pub to a public library, a park bench to an art gallery, the Turbine Hall to your living room!
The Antiuniversity was a movement in the late 1960s based in Rivington Street, Shoreditch. It included iconic figures such as C.L.R James, John Latham, Juliet Mitchell, R.D. Laing and Stuart Hall who wanted to break the structures forced by institutions such as schools, universities and hospitals.
The Antiuniversity wanted to allow people to meet each other without having to act out socially prescribed roles, believing that this would expose the terrible reality of modern life, in which nobody really knew anyone, and spark a revolution.
Have a discovery you’d like to share? An idea you want to discuss? A new theory you need testing?
