Four locations, three days, one question – how is learning made?
From the 23-25 January we transformed the fifth floor of Tate Modern’s Switch House, into an interdisciplinary and intergenerational Pop-up School & Symposium.
Interrogating what a creative education could look like in 2017, last week students and staff from our creative continuum travelled to London’s Tate Exchange; an annual programme of international artists and collectives, working together to illuminate the value of art to society.
Deconstructing their creative practice under the public’s gaze, artists and curators as young as four through to Masters level study participated in collaborative making and discussion, exploring the gallery environment’s effect on their chosen medium and meaning.
Day one’s Pop-up School focussed on process. Beginning with a blank canvas learning space, students and staff were encouraged to ‘Make, deconstruct, and make again’.
