  • 7 january 2009

The Temporary School of thought is reminiscent of a rave or outlaw party – only it’s dedicated to learning rather than dancing all night to techno. Like some kind of festival of underground schooling, Temporary School is being run all this week by a group of squatters in the prestigious Mayfair area of London. Classes take place in a beautiful townhouse and range from “infrastructure for anarchists” to book binding, laughter workshops, bicycle maintenance and gardening. Everything is free, the event is dedicated to the admirable ideals of mutual learning and skill sharing rather than making money. This is another of many non-traditional learning environments we’ve seen pop up recently such as School of Everything and The School of Life. You can still get in on the action, classes run through Sunday – check out the schedule and directions on their site below.
