Evening Class is an experiment in self-organised education that has been active since January 2016. It's a space where we can cultivate common interests, develop research and collectively decide the class’s programme from our space in Aberfeldy Street, Poplar. Our programme takes the form of public workshops, talks and debates, reading groups, radio broadcasting, performances, walks, and publishing.
We currently operate through different working groups that feed their research back into the collective. These working groups explore a range of themes, like unionising design practices, post-capitalist desire and the commons. Through these groups we work on developing a curriculum of both theory and practice, often working in collaboration with other like-minded organisations and individuals.
The group currently consists of around 12 participants from different educational and cultural backgrounds, who form an active collaboration.
We are an open organisation and always looking for new members. If you're interested in what we're doing, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a visit.
Evening Class meets twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (7.30pm). It is currently located at 48 Aberfeldy Street, Poplar, E14 0NU with occasional meetings in other locations.
The shop has wide double doors and a step into the space. Unfortunately we don't have an accessible toilet.
Evening Class is a self-funded, not-for-profit group. The expenses are decided collectively and fluctuate in accordance with the group’s needs. At the moment they amount to £40 a month each, which goes towards renting the space, funding our educational programme and paying for contributors/speakers etc. Support us by donating here.
