Free Home University (FHU)

Free Home University (FHU) is a pedagogical experiment created in 2013 by an international group of artists and thinkers. Based in the Salento region of Italy, it focuses on generating new ways of sharing and creating knowledge by experiencing life in common. The name Free Home University refers to how a horizontal, inviting, energy-liberating environment (Free), within a protected and intimate space (Home), can provide an alternative, yet universal knowledge sharing (University). Intimacy, immersion, mutual learning, collaboration and hands-on practice are considered fundamental values. FHU is a project of Loop House and Musagetes, curated by Alissa Firth-Eagland, Luigi Negro and Alessandra Pomarico.
