Education by and for us...
A key purpose of Jangling Space is to develop an integrated opportunity for community learning and the swapping of our skills/knowledge. Education – in particular Popular Education – is important to Jangling Space.
This is education by and for those in the community, we teach each other – we are the experts of our community. It is centred on action. It is inherently political.
The aim of this cooperative is to build community and develop place-based action. Often, community initiatives are built by organisations or authorities that are not meaningfully engaged with people at all – done through ‘partnerships’. It is nearly always rooted in the problems that a particular community face.
We focus on what is strong, not what is wrong.
