POSTED BY: Lawrence Lek | Thu Jun 20th, 2013 5:13 a.m.
LOCATION: The White Building

Free Cooper Union UK (FCUUK) invites you to Public Assembly, a one-day free school celebrating alternative forms of knowledge and creative expression in art and technology.

Join us for a full day of architectural installations, live demonstrations, water taxis, canal boat lectures, cinema screenings, talks and performances, accompanied by photo booth, DIY publications, parents' coffee stand, and refreshments.

We pay tribute to New York City's last free university - the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Art and Science, whose Board of Trustees voted to end its 154-year tradition of giving full scholarships to all admitted students.
