“If we want to truly re-imagine education, we will have to re-imagine 
ourselves and the lives we are living...”

As their legacies, operations and assumptions become more available for 
scrutiny, traditional schools are becoming less meaningful and more 
problematic. The idea that children are meant to be enclosed in 
buildings, removed from their immediate contexts, policed and 
pressurised to rise to imposed standards, branded and certified, and 
then released into a world that awaits them, is disconcerting – to put 
it mildly. In short, we need to listen to our children again – and, in 
the same gesture, find our way home. We have new response-abilities: to 
co-produce learning sites where our children can be free to do their 
work with the world, and to invite new ways of un/learning together that 
privileges play, community, ‘slow’ rituals, and earth-honouring practices.

But what does that look like? What about conventional education seems 
problematic? What haunts schooling in India and in most so-called ‘third 
world’ nations? Can the education system be reformed or does it have to 
be dismantled? How are we being enabled to counteract the colonial 
legacies of schooling, and what forms do these ethical responses assume 
in the specifics of our localities? What kind of radical educational 
practices and experiments are happening and possible now? What are the 
possibilities and shadows we need to explore in ‘unschooling’ practices? 
How can you start re-imagining education in your community? And much, 
much more.

In this workshop, leading social and educational visionary Manish Jain 
will host unlearning conversations and exercises around reimagining 
education, experimenting with possibilities for alternatives, and 
learning to meet our children – whose magic and work we desperately need 

This workshop is primarily for those people who are working in education 
or want to build alternative learning centres or community spaces

This workshop will be also very useful for those trying to build new 
learning spaces in their own families, communities, schools and 
alternative education spaces.

Like many places across India and around the world, Swaraj University is 
experimenting with rethinking our lifestyle and our relationship with 
ourselves, our work, our resources, and our communities. We are 
questioning, challenging and experimenting with our set notions of 
money. So, we welcome you to join our experiment and explore your 
relationship with money.

By participating in such workshops you are, in a non-monetary way , 
supporting and encouraging such learning spaces to thrive and stay 
alive. You are, in a beautiful way, taking forward the larger movement 
of reclaiming our learning.

However, it is important we all contribute and take care of the needs of 
the place and meet the actual expenses for hosting such a workshop.

The suggested contribution for this workshop is 9500/-. By contributing 
this amount (or more), you would also partly be helping those who find 
it hard to access these spaces due to financial constraints. Money 
should not be a barrier to your attending. Please ask for a partial 
scholarship if you need it.

Please feel free to forward this invite to your friends, family, 
networks that you are part of and people you feel would love to be part 
of such a workshop.

Please call Harsh at +91 9958311401 for any details.


Team Swaraj Uni.
