Exploring the oft-used ‘alternative’ path to education, NewBridge Project’s latest foray into educational and informative programming sees artists Paul Stewart and John Reardon build a workshop which explores so-called ‘alternative’ schools, universities and institutions which still operate within the educational system. The workshop, which takes place on Saturday 10th June, delves into existing models and organisations, hoping to explore the past and future of the educational establishment, and the ways in which it can change. The artists aim to gain a much deeper understanding of the educational structure and curriculum. Do they mirror current practices within ‘the system’, or produce an alternative pedagogy? All will be revealed.

The event launches as part of the Anti University Now festival. which aims to challenge the academic and class hierarchy present in learning institutions. the nation-spanning festival encourages learning in all fashions and in any place, challenging our traditional and often perspectives on education. These free, accessible and inclusive classes will take place across the country, encouraging those both in and out of education to participate.

Building Stuff Up, Tearing Stuff Down is at NewBridge Project, Newcastle on Saturday 10th June.
