The Education as Experimentation Symposium is a unique gathering of art educators, artists, designers, philosophers, and arts professionals, featuring a select group of American and European scholars. These invited guests will present experimental protocols that involve attendees in an interactive exploration of educational possibilities. Rather than focusing on the generation of outcomes such as grades and other metrics, session leaders and attendees will investigate the experience of education itself. The experimental protocols will provide occasions to perform creative and intellectual activities that seek to further elucidate what happens to the self—among both teachers and students—during moments of creation, study, tinkering, hacking, and other modes of sustained curiosity and awareness.
