Inside out school

Tuesday, December 2, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm


“Dialogue cannot exist in the absence of a profound love for the world and its people. Only through communication can human life hold meaning.” Paulo Freire


‘Inside outside school’ will be a school within a school. Its existence will be temporary, unstable and conflicted. We will use these tensions to explore the relationship between teaching and learning, students and educators, inside and outside art school. What shapes our education and why? How can we affect our learning?

Part I

10am till 2pm / for GSA students
Meet in the Communication Design Studio, level 1, Reid Building

The morning workshop will be an active introduction to the ideas of past experimental education projects that inspire the school. We will work with objects to create interventions in space that re-shape our environment and challenge how we interact with it and each other.

Part II

4pm till 7pm / all welcome; students, staff and friends
Reid Building (location tbc – will be signposted)

Somewhere between a symposium, a discussion, and a challenge to its own existence. A convivial debate on design, education and more.

Run by Toni Brell, Sophie Dyer, Rosie Eveleigh and Thom Swann.


Research and development for Inside out school was supported by Creative Scotland.



We will add links to reference material, online and off-line, along with a write up of the afternoon’s activities here soon.

If you are curious to know more visit Parallel School or The Teachable File for a comprehensive directory on experimental education projects, past and present.
