THE 'EDUCATION AND SOCIAL ACTION' CONFERENCE building on the tradition of previous conferences organised by the Centre for Popular Education will:
* bring people engaged in different fields of social action and education together
* be a forum where activists, workers, policy makers, artists and scholars alike are encouraged to participate
* encourage research and enquiry to promote practice that helps people analyse and address social injustices
* have workshops that are sufficiently long to have decent discussions or engage in hands-on activities
* have plenty of music, theatre and dance; but more importantly there will be some opportunities for collaborative art-practice.
