Free Home University is an alternative university  facilitating pedagogical and artistic exploration for participants, specifically engaging struggling communities, such as LGBTQI+ organizations, refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, and land activists.

FHU is an open–ended, research-based, artist-led experiment in radical education. It is an intensive collective experience, operating with coalitional and self-directed methods, encouraging different ways of learning, responding to the local-global issues of our times. FHU is an experiment focused on generating new ways of sharing and creating knowledge by experiencing life in common. The name recalls the aspiration to be a non-vertical, energy-liberating, insurgent environment (Free), within a protected and intimate space (Home), committed to creating a temporary autonomous community of learners (University) and counter-model pedagogy. In Free Home University, the lines of inquiry and methods of study vary following the proposals, desires and perspectives of people participating, shaped by different processes, practices, and urgencies.
