This pilot program features pop-up classes at various locations on the land of the Lenape and Canarsie people (currently known as NYC). The locations are chosen by the teaching artists and times vary to accommodate a range of participant schedules.
Registration is OPEN and REQUIRED! Any updates to the specifics of class location (ex. "there is a pickup soccer game in the original location so we are going across the path") will be communicated via email to registered participants, as well as updated on the @freeskewl Instagram story. Registered participants will also receive the cellphone # of the freeskewl class monitor. Registration can be completed up until when class begins but must be completed before participating as it includes a liability waiver.
Payment is via a tiered system based on economic position. Determine your place on these scales by considering your circumstances of inherited wealth (financial and social capital) / other sources of financial support. Black, Indigenous, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Latinx, Disabled, and Trans* folx may pay outside these tiers.
$7-15 - Unemployed
$15-25 - Stable Employment
$25-50 - Artist Supporter
Payment will go directly to the facilitators (see class pages above). Facilitators participate in the freeskewl Reparations Initiative.
Masks must be worn at all times! You may move away from the group to drink water or eat a snack. Physical distancing of 3 feet is required as per CDC guidelines.
Each class has different procedures for inclement weather decided upon by the facilitator. Any changes of plan will be shared with those registered and updated on the @freeskewl Instagram story. If you have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
All locations are grassy. They are accessible by train and are intended to be reachable by wheelchair. Specifics are under each class' LOCATION section. We look forward to hosting class in non-grassy spaces in the future. Please be in touch at email@example.com with any questions and/or any access needs.
