Welcome to the University Project


We're living through a time of massive disruption of the way 


Universities: Past & Future

14-16 October, Hub Westminster, London


Please join us for a weekend of conversations & encounters, exploring the past and the future of the university.


The idea is to bring together people involved in all kinds of projects and experiments in creating new pockets and pathways for the cultivation of knowledge, within or outside of existing institutions. Let's share our stories and experiences, find places where we can collaborate or support each other, and remember the long history of the invention and reinvention of the spaces in which we learn.


The weekend will run from 7pm on Friday to 4.30pm on Sunday and you're welcome to join us for all or part of it. We'll use an informal unconference structure, so the schedule will take shape over the weekend itself. 


People: If you're coming to the weekend, please add your name and (if you like) a bit of information about yourself here. (There's also a "Present in spirit" section, for people who would like to be there but can't - we'll do our best to link you up to what happens.)


Sessions: If there's a discussion you'd like to host, a project you want to talk about, or anything else - a performance, a game, a debate - then please post a short description here, including your contact details. There will be further opportunities to propose a session over the weekend itself.


Reading: Share articles, books, blog posts or any other recommended reading that's relevant to the theme of the weekend.


Projects: Add projects, experiments or organisations which you think of as relevant to the theme of the weekend.


Accommodation: We're already hearing from people from around the UK (and beyond) who want to come to the weekend. If you live in London and you're able to offer crash space, please post on this page (including some kind of contact details). If you're coming from elsewhere and don't have anyone to stay with, you're welcome to post a request.


We'll also be looking for a few volunteers to help us with practical stuff over the weekend, so please get in touch if you'd like to help.
