Independent Working Class Education event: Birmingham 14th June

Saturday 14th June. 10.30 - 3.30

School of Education

BIRMINGHAM University [G3 North East Car Park (free)] 


The day will have two focuses: 

1. A short discussion about the ongoing development of the IWCE Manifesto ( and 

2. Presentations by organisers of radical informal education projects in England today  

In the past five years or so, a number of radical informal and trade union education projects have been developing. Talks will be given by organisers of four such projects: (Birmingham Radical EDucation, BRE(A)D), the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU), the Independent Working Class Education network (IWCE) and People’s Political Economy (PPE).   

Speakers will address sets of questions so that there can be a discussion afterwards of their commonalities and differences and the factors that contribute to their success and that prevent them from a fuller realization of their intentions. 

This part of the day has two aims: a. provide information about these projects to others who might want to join them or create sister projects in their own region and b. networking, skills and resources sharing and, potentially, building up possibilities for future collaborations between these and other groups. 

Those interested in participating in this event should contact: Joyce Canaan,
