To call Free School Denver "grassroots" is almost too mild: Like a relic of the '60s, DFS has no hierarchies. Formed in that nascent spirit of community education, the school offers all classes for free, and anyone can attend or teach one. Sessions tend to go down in private homes or welcoming venues that range from coffee houses to public parks, and subjects might include anything from an ongoing Revolutionary Reading Group to Hemp Jewelry Making.
FSD's calendar changes seasonally, and tonight at the Imaginarium, the school will host a Free School Denver Summer 2012 Calendar Release Party -- an untraditionally formal way of way of saying, "Let's get together and hang out for a while."
The party starts at 8 p.m. Bring potluck dishes to share and also a talent, if you like; everyone is welcome to perform (contact James Scott on the Facebook event page for details). For additional information visit DFS online.
