From the website, Antiuniversity aspires to be a "collaborative experiment to revisit and reimagine the 1968 Antiuniversity of London in an ongoing programme of free and inclusive learning events."

Its aims are stated as to: "challenges academic and class hierarchy through an open invitation to teach and learn any subject, in any form, anywhere."

The format has been as festivals during which distributed events take place around the UK. they also promote and organise particular coures outside of this time.

The core organisers are 4 London based artist/ educationalissts and 100s of other co-organisers who put on courses and events.

Despite Kwame Toure having been said to have coined the phrase institutional racism at the Dialectical Liberation Conference at the AU, the current central committee have reacted with resistence to efforts to decolonise and critique the institutional racism of the current project. We are therefore developing a course to assist all parties involve: see /Decolonising
