This could become very important. It might not be the free Liverpool Art School University; but for Sheffield it has a super amount of potential. The big society indeed.

Basic info on Sheffield Universal Education Collective:
The Sheffield Universal Education Collective is a recently formed body of rank and file union activists and workers in the higher education sector of Sheffield. Our aims are:
1) to provide a free and radical, and an open and democratic, education space in the city;
2) to offer sessions that both critically think about the world around us and explore means to changing the world around us;
3) to employ innovative and inclusive pedagogies.
We have been inspired by the recent waves of student protests and activism, and wish to link up with such students, and others, in a productive and creative educational exchange.
Our ambition is to include a wide layer of politically committed education practitioners in the city, from HE but also the school, further and adult education sectors.
