About this Event

We are excited to announce this very timely discussion on one of the most important books ever written on oppression and education.

As our schools and education system come under sustained attack from government reforms, and the pandemic decimates our children’s access to learning, join us to discuss the revolutionary potential of education.

Paulo Freire’s classic Pedagogy of the Oppressed contends that traditional teaching styles keep the poor powerless by treating them as passive, silent recipients of knowledge.

Grounded in Freire’s own experience teaching Brazilian adults to read and write, this pioneering book instead suggests that pedagogy should treat the learner as a co-creator of knowledge, and that through co-operation, dialogue and critical thinking, every human being can develop a sense of self and fulfil their right to be heard.

Tune into listen to Landless Workers’ Movement (MST) member Fabetz, NEU member Vik and TWT member Sarah in conversation about education and pedagogy.

Fabetz is a member of the Landless Workers’ Movement/Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem Terra (MST) in Brasil. Fabetz is a part of the PPC (Political Pedagogical Coordination) of the Florestan Fernandes National School, and member of the International Relations Collective and also Political Education Sector of the MST.

Vik Chechi-Ribeiro is a teacher, trade union rep and organiser. He is also Manchester National Education Union’s Vice-President and on sits on the union’s National Executive.

Sarah Vowden is a steering group member of The World Transformed (TWT), a radical political education organisation in the UK. She was the Arts Coordinator for The World Transformed festival in 2018, and continues to programme cultural content with the TWT arts working group that experiments in pedagogical approaches. Sarah is also an independent researcher working across writing and film.
