Fuelled by economic crisis, austerity and the liberalisation of higher education, the landscape of alternative art education features a multitude of diverse organisations that offer free or affordable tuition. They cooperate to develop peer-led curricula and experiment with models of self-organisation, addressing the unique needs and learning styles of individual students: flexible, unfettered and responsive by rigid ties to funding, policy and industry.
