” … cover(s) a broad terrain, yet manages to go into a lot of detail, venturing well beyond sloganeering.”

Isa Fremeaux


Isa Fremeaux began teaching at the age of four, when her father made a black board for her dolls. Twenty-five years later having become a Senior Lecturer in Media Studies at Birkbeck University, London, she deserted academia to focus on her real passion: popular education and creative activist trainings, specialising in group dynamics and facilitation for horizontal movements. She has worked as an organizer and media strategist in the UK climate camp and is the co-founder (with John Jordan) of art activist collective The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination (www.labofii.net). Co-author of the book/film Les Sentiers de l’Utopie (Paths Through Utopias), she is now setting up a commune and school of creative resistance in rural France, where the artistic spirit of the Bauhaus hopes to merge with the resistant courage of Highlander Folk School.
