The third IRI Meeting will be held in Athens in December 2018. With the collaboration of the Solidarity School Mesopotamia and the Open School Piraeus, the Institute of Radical Imagination wants to both create an institutional memory of practices of radical pedagogy and set up together with solidarity schools, a protocol for social activation and political prefiguration of education in the commons.

The theme of the meeting is Radical Education. An action-intervention will bring together interested actors in a workshop from December 15th to 17th, organized by IRI together with the LUC (Laboratory on Urban Commons) focuses on Solidarity Schools and forms of Radical Education.
