University of Local Knowledge

The University of Local Knowledge (ULK) explores, uncovers and celebrates the skills, talents and expertise in the Knowle West and surrounding localities, and makes them available to share and combine. It aims to challenge perceptions of how knowledge is gained, used and valued.
