Popular Education Series

by anchorarchivist...

The Popular Education talks were a series of lectures, discussions, slide shows, show & tell and other kinds of presentations that took place in the Crow's Nest at the Roberts Street Social Centre. 

The talks were organized in the spirit of providing free access to education and information, inspiring critical discussion and fighting the winter blues.

Talks happened every Wednesday at 7pm.
