‘Art, School, Society’ is Open School East’s inaugural public discussion. This roundtable gathers artists, curators and practitioners who are invested in researching and developing alternatives forms of education, artistic and otherwise. The event will include presentations of ongoing and forthcoming projects, considerations on access and usefulness, and speculations about the future of self-organized schools and their relationship to society.
