Some of the ideas behind this independent student initiative, opening its doors to the public on Saturday 10th (from David Brancaleone’s blog on the Circa website):

Paulo Freire said that learning and schooling are not the same thing and that most learning takes place in an informal setting outside the classroom. In this respect, Art in the making provides a forum for learning as reflective discipline (occurring outside the framework of formal learning, learner types, tasks, curriculum, course design, teaching aims, learning outcomes and formative and summative assessment). Freire’s approach was to see learning in terms of emancipation; as a means to have a voice in the world or what Jürgen Habermas calls our “lifeworlds” and improve them; something that becomes possible once we learn to learn. ‘Learning to learn’ makes it possible to adapt -exciting, because it is only when one of the forms of intelligence is engaged experientally that we realise our potential. Now that’s active learning.

    As you probably have gathered, AITM isn’t entirely rigid so things may not stick to this timetable exactly but shall be in this order. Also there is no rush out of the place after it is over. People are free to hang out as we document the art work.
