Constitution for a co-operative art school
Tue, 3 Dec 2019, 6-9pm
Conway Hall Library, 25 Red Lion Square, Holborn, London WC1R 4RL
All welcome, please book your place

Come along and contribute your ideas to a draft constitution for a co-operative art school. Using a series of questions as guidelines, we will collectively generate, articulate, debate and decide the values, principles, processes and working methods of an art school that is organised, structured and governed along co-operative values of autonomy, democracy, equality and solidarity.

Please read the texts in advance and bring your own questions along to the workshop. This is the third and final workshop in a series that explores potential models for a co-operative form of art education. Attendance to one of the previous workshops is highly recommended but you can also prepare by doing your own reading and research.

A co-operative art school? is a research project on co-operative education, alternative art education, radical pedagogy, self-organisation, networks and other dimensions of a co-operative learning environment. The project is supported by an Artquest Research Residency award at the Conway Hall Humanist Library.
