FreeschoolSeptember 9, 2007
As mentioned before, Steve Sikes will be organizing the Freeschool classes at the new location. Here’s a message from Steve…
Freeschool/Skillshare Project: coming soon to an Inertia near you.
The Good News: Freeschool is coming back.
The Bad News: We need something from you.
What we need is feedback. Looking back over the last year or so we have what we see as it’s successes and we have other things we see as failures. But with the change in venue and such, we’re looking to make Freeschools better as well. Help us out w/ some feedback if you would:
1) What do you think about Freeschools being centered more around issues that will help folks better their lives? (think: less classes on papermaking and animal rights issues and more classes on resume-writing or how to get a better job, time-management, etc…)
2) What do you think about a skillshare program where folks sign up for projects they want to do in the community or even in their own apartments/houses? (ie: would you help a TOTAL STRANGER paint their living room or start a garden on a Saturday afternoon just ’cause they needed some help?)
3) The best one: What classes would YOU like to see taught at a Freeschool. Feel free to list as many as you like… suggestions are always welcome, and in this case… NEEDED!
You can email Steve at email@example.com, or respond to these questions here as a comment.
Also an aside… We are officially closed now at the Heartworks location. Things are moving right along with the building. I could see us being open for business as early as September 12th. We’d still be putting up a sign and painting and plenty of whatnot, but our initial goal of having records and books available to the public should be met. You’ll hear the official word on our ‘lite’ opening on this site. So check back.
