Shikshantar – Learning Society Unconference 2011.

Learning Society Unconference, April 2011

The sixth Unfolding LSC was organized at the Deer Park Institute in Himachal Pradesh. This year’s conference was self-organized around the themes of Contemplation, Compassion, Creativity and Courage.

Shikshantar, a not-for-profit movement was founded to challenge the culture of schooling and institutions of thoughtcontrol. We are committed to creating spaces of wisdom, imagination and friendship where individuals and communities can together engage in deep dialogues to: (1) generate meaningful critiques to expose and dismantle/transform industrialmilitary models of Education and Development, (2) reclaim control over their own learning processes and learning ecologies, and (3) imagine (and continually evolve) their own complex shared visions and practices of Swaraj. We are experimenting with processes of gift culture, jugaad. deep dialogue, and unlearning. Shikshantar is run solely through the support of friends. As a matter of principle, we do not accept funding from international donor agencies, governments or corporations.
