FreeSchoolPDX provides free workshops twice a month in order to build community through knowledge sharing. FreeSchoolPDX functions without the hierarchy or institutional environment of formal schooling. The workshops are intended to provide collectivism, self-reliance, and inspiration. We embrace an informal, non-authoritarian learning environment outside of the monetary economy.
FreeSchoolPDX is anti-capitalist and anti-racist; we oppose sexism, homophobia, and transphobia. Priority for teaching and learning spots are given to people of color and the LGBTQ community.
In December 2018, Free School was awarded the Precipice Grant through PICA! As a result, we can offer more classes, buy more materials, and pay future teachers! If you are interested in teaching, fill out one of our teaching forms.
