The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home, based in a family home in Liverpool, UK, founded in 2007, is an intervention into family life and the normative upbringing of children. They identify as anarchist, anti-capitalist and feminist. Our interventions happen across various levels: through activities in our own home by way of performances, artists’ residencies, meetings, reading groups and through our participation as a family of performers at different art events, protests, festivals and academic conferences. The Institute’s activities involve taking the children to political demonstrations and learning together how to be critical citizens rather than passive consumers. The Institute is funded by 10% of the family’s net income (two senior lecturer salaries, child benefit and any other freelance work), and currently stands at around £450 per month.
