There will be a series of expert speakers including activists, university academics and writers. Confirmed so far are student activist Feyzi Ismail, Alice Bell from Sussex University and activists from Shape Your Culture, Disabled People Against Cuts and the 3 Cosas Campaign.
On the back of this fantastic piece about us in The Guardian, a lot of people have been getting in touch to ask if there’s a way they can become involved with Demand the Impossible! in the future.
We’re very interested in hearing from educators, activists, potential participants or anyone else who would like to contribute their ideas, expertise or enthusiasm to the project. We hope to have some firm ideas soon about how the course could be developed and other groups involved, but in the meantime please do send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment below.
