As part of Critical Practice I participated in a discussion organised by Department 21 at the Royal College of Art.
Critical Practice, a cluster of artists, researchers and academics hosted by Chelsea College of Art and Design, a constituent college of the University of the Arts London. We have a longstanding interest in art, public goods, spaces, services and knowledge, and a track record of producing original, participatory events.
At Department 21 six independent, bottom-up educational initiatives shared their experiences of experimenting with different systems of teaching and learning, through radically reassessing accepted modes of knowledge distribution.
For the future, we aim to compile a manual of good practice to explore horizontal, transparent educational models within institutions.
