Un/Learning Space is a newly initiated project by Open Space to support and mentor emerging art creatives. By both learning and unlearning, the workshops that will be available between April-September 2021 will aim to question the classical institutional teaching.
UN/LEARNING SPACE: Strategies for Knowledge Sharing – a Workshop about Workwith Inês Neto dos Santos
21 June 2021 (Monday), 6:30-8 pm
In this session, artist Inês Neto dos Santos will discuss the importance of knowledge sharing and horizontal learning in her practice, and offer insight into ways of opening up an artist’s practice to others via the format of the workshop. This will be explored through a series of short exercises and discussions. For artists and creative practitioners interested in non-institutional education, participation and democratising access to art practice.
Note: While these workshops are free we do rely on donations in order to support our workshop leaders financially.
