Back to School: FHU @ Banzi, Liceo Scientifico, Lecce
We are thrilled to announce a new collaboration with the students and teachers of Liceo Scientifico Banzi, one of the most progressive and vibrant high schools of Salento, where Free Home has been invited to expand the learning through our artistic approach, and reinforce community ties within the school, the neighborhood and the social fabric of the city.
To reach younger learners in their formative years, to contribute to their curiosity, their personal and collective quests, to collaborate with their teachers in widening the imagination, experimenting with creative ways of knowing, exploring more actively social issues and engaging in embodied practices -is a wonderful new challenge and a great opportunity for our own on-going learning journey!
Thriving to bring together art, pedagogy and community, Free Home goes back to school, reclaiming the learning in both formal and informal environment, questioning issues of emplacement and displacement, spaces of inclusion and exclusion, starting from our bodies, interrogating our ways of seeing and our privileges.
The program will include workshops, student -led research and activities, focus groups with teachers around inclusive, horizontal, and alternative pedagogies, a series of talks and seminars on human and environmental rights, on the production of knowledge in the age of fake news, walks into the city, and a final festival to celebrate our knowledge,
