Sharing and Supporting Anarchist Ideas and Experiences

Month: April 2021

Joyful Resistance, May 7

Online event, Friday, May 7, 2021. Choose the timezone that works best for you.

Being an anarchist educator can be a pretty lonely affair from time to time. We’ve seen a need to approach this issue by many of our members and participants in our events, and we’d like to do something practical about it.

Creating a community to share experiences and ideas is a useful approach to develop ourselves as educators, but we also need each other to take care of ourselves.
Mutual care, as the emotional part of mutual aid, is an essential part of our survival and resistance in neoliberal educational environments. We’d like to invite all of you to our monthly Joyful Resistance group, where we are creating a safe space of mutual support to endure our struggles and create resistance networks together. Here, we’ll have a safe space to meet others, criticize safely, open up, give and receive support, and keep on our educational work together.

Our goal is to develop self-directed groups where we can create our own structures, topics and agendas.

In order to facilitate these meetings, we’ll have three different meetings during each date, adapted to 3 different time zones. You can choose to participate either in Spanish or English, just remember to register in advance. we’ll send you the link to the event a couple of days in advance. Link to the registration form:

Kropotkin and the Radical Educators – A Global Historical Perspective

Online event, Thursday, April 22, 2021, 6-7 PM UCT (check local times below)

UPDATE: A video recording of this discussion is available on the APN YouTube channel.

During the early 20th century, radical educators from different parts of the world engaged with Peter Kropotkin’s anarchist theory when devising and implementing educational experiments in diverse socio-political contexts. While Kropotkin was not known as an educational figure like Dewey or Montessori, his anarchist theories, and his support of educators, made him an important figure for many intellectuals and educators. In this webinar, Yotam Ronen will present Kropotkin’s influence over radical educators in different sites of learning throughout the first half of the 20th century, and investigate the diversity in which educators have engaged with his work and applied it to their educational practice.

A principios del siglo XX, educadores radicales de diferentes partes del mundo se comprometieron con la teoría anarquista de Peter Kropotkin al diseñar e implementar experimentos educativos en diversos contextos sociopolíticos. Si bien Kropotkin no era conocido como una figura educativa como Dewey o Montessori, sus teorías anarquistas y su apoyo a los educadores lo convirtieron en una figura importante para muchos intelectuales y educadores. En este webinario, Yotam Ronen presentará la influencia de Kropotkin sobre los educadores radicales en diferentes lugares de aprendizaje durante la primera mitad del siglo XX e investigará la diversidad en la que los educadores se han involucrado con su trabajo y lo han aplicado a su práctica educativa.
