About Tent City University

Welcome to Tent City University @OccupyLondon! This is a space to learn, share knowledge and develop skills through a wide series of workshops, lectures, debates, films, games, praxis and action. As formal education becomes more and more commodified and inaccessible, here we have an opportunity to explore alternatives. Because between us we have all the resources we need. Anyone can teach, everyone can learn – and the two go hand in hand. Feel free to propose sessions, listen to new ideas and share with others what you know or want to know. Post eviction we remain committed to promoting collective wisdom and looking at how we use knowledge together. We’re now focusing on how we relocate TCU both conceptually and physically. We will focus on outreach and communication using teach outs and holding TCU events in many places. We will be surprising and unlikely, creating a database of places closed and open. Starting on the 17th of March, as a big teach out day. Please email suggestions to
