In these unprecedented times in which students are confined to home and the universities are closed,  tuition free university and charity, The University of the Underground announces the launch of a new online programme. 

Initially intended for a research bureau between Georgia and Holland titled ‘If I Can’t Dance I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution’, the University of the Underground’s repurposed programme will now bring together multidisciplinary practitioners investigating disciplines such as dance and other experiential mediums and their potential in building organised communities and reinventing politics within institutions and beyond. Of interest to this bureau are the opportunities for creativity and playfulness towards political, economical and sociological systems. The University of the Underground will also consider how creatives, organised communities and politics can inspire one another and what would happen if they merge. How do dance parades undermine power structures or create a blueprint for new ones? What can politicians learn from musicians, magicians, drag queens, boxers and vice versa? How can new forms of debate develop from voguing and how will new systems of government, or nation-states emerge from streaming and free jazz?

While some classes will be donated by the board of the University of the Underground (ie: Rose McGowan, Paola Antonelli, Tea Uglow, Damian Bradfield and more) and its teaching team; others will be given by selected freelance creatives, practitioners, alumnis of the University of the Underground and others whose practice has been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.

These teachers will benefit from the support of the University of the Underground charity in delivering these virtual classes, tutorials and digital workshops. Today, the University of the Underground calls for them to send them proposals for online classes. The University of the Underground also asks students and young people to register their interest and join the online programme by emailing email hidden; JavaScript is required
