Fabuler l'École

June 10, 2019 - June 17, 2019

DARE-DARE launches its experimental school project. This first, six-day laboratory will gather 15 people under the directive Fabuler l’École (Fantasize the School), as a way to imagine and experiment alternative pedagogies. 

In a collective and multiform learning-oriented context, we wish to share practices, gestures, perceptions, experiences, thus cultivating collective intelligence and heterogenous knowledges. This pluri-ryhtmic laboratory based on co-existing temporalities emanates from the desire to think, together, on engagement through art in the public space, on preocess-based practices and on the ways of occupying and using public space in a decolonial perspective.

The goal of this transdisciplinary and participative journey, for which there is no predictable outcome, is to imagine, with a free mind, what is and what will be DARE-DARE’s experimental school. The invitation is extended to artists, thinkers, practicioners, unruly or not, who will engage in the creation of new forms, while seeking a (de)formation.

The six days are self-organized and the collaboration of participants activated through six conceptual enablers : observe, listen, move (oneself), deform, fantasize, extend. Participants will be invited to suggest and facilitate seminars or workshops, in line with their desires.
