Description

What are the different forms of workshops, and why do people participate in them? Why are workshops an interesting form to work in as an artist, curator, or organizer? This event will consist of a two-hour session on the creation, planning and production of educational programs as a form of experimental curation. The process begins with an intensive brainstorming exercise where each participant comes up with 50 topics they have some minimal knowledge of (crochet, escaping from handcuffs, satellite design, napping, etc). From there we will take selections from the topics and develop them into workshops which are not only open to different styles and speeds of learning, but satisfying, surprising, and welcoming to the public.

Cosponsored by the Extra-Institutional Education Seminar in the Humanities.
