The coordinating committee for the APN would like to thank you for you participation in the first ever School Revolt festival. For the past few weeks, we’ve heard about your great work, your important questions, and your inspiring projects. We deeply appreciate all of the hard work that has gone into everything that has been shared with us and everyone else. We appreciate the presenters and the projects that they brought forward, prompting a lot of amazing conversations around a range of ideas. We also greatly appreciate everyone who has participated across the board. Thank you very much for helping us to make School Revolt 2022 such a success!
Now that the festival has come to an end, the coordinating committee for the APN will be taking some time to do some self-reflection and learning. While we are absolutely delighted with how it came about and everything that has happened, we know that there are things that we could’ve done better and want to learn from those. We want to take those matters seriously so that we can make the next festival even better! We’d love for you to send any kind of feedback so that we can help make the spaces that we build and inhabit more inclusive, more supportive, and closer to our shared goals.
While School Revolt may be over for now, the learning can still continue! If your session was recorded, you can find it on our YouTube channel, along with other recordings from other live sessions and prerecorded sessions. Feel free to browse through those any time you want. You can find our School Revolt playlist on our YouTube channel.
Throughout the year, we host a range of events, workshops, and webinars that are widely available. We also have a podcast project that we work on, and we’re always looking to work with and/or support others in building relationships and coming together to develop other spaces of learning. If you have an idea for something you’d like to share, if you would like to collaborate with us, or if there is anything you’d like to work on together, please feel free to reach out to us at any time. We’re always happy to help support others in their learning processes in any way that helps.
Of course, also feel free to reach out and tell us about projects you’re working on and want to share! We love hearing what other people are doing and hope that, with every connection we make, we can work together to build the many different pathways to the worlds that support us in collective liberation.
Finally, if you’d like to participate more directly with the APN, our coordinating group is happy to receive new members. If you want to help with planning and putting together any of the events that we host or want to help keep everything going behind the scenes, please reach out to us as well.
We hope to see you all soon and again, either at APN events or in any space where anarchist perspectives on education are celebrated.
Love and solidarity,
