Leave those kids alone! Teaching, learning and resistance through art

Chelsea Programme, in partnership with The Showroom, presents an afternoon of workshops, discussions and presentations that aims to interpret, critique and reflect on connections between education, art practice and the contemporary political sphere.

This event aims to create a space for engaged, critical discussion around the idea of the educational turn, radical or alternative pedagogy, the role of the arts institution in supporting (or stifling) dissent, with particular reference to the recent protests and ongoing ideological attack on education as a right, not a privilege.

Leave those kids alone! features conversation and presentations led by Mirza & Butler, The Free University of Liverpool and a workshop led by FLAG artists group.

We aim to create an open space, with full participation by attendees and participants. Refreshments will be provided.

This event is FREE. To book a place, please contact s.dyer[at]chelsea.arts.ac.uk with ‘Leave those kids alone!’ as the subject heading.

‘Leave those kids alone! Teaching, learning and resistance through art’
is part of a series of events and projects Chelsea Programme has supported during 2010 – 11, utilising and critiquing the art academy as a space for dissent and discussion and for creating alternative visions of society. This includes If Not, Then What? curated by Cecilia Wee and the Imagining Commoniversity workshop run by Hackitectura.net, as part of the Transeuropa Festival.
