Beginning of December, our urban hub gains a new dimension when the team from Berlin joined us at the two days workshop.
The Center for the Promotion of Science organized an international conference Art + Science + Makers, which took place on November 14 and 15 at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts and the Scientific Club. We were there.
In September 2018 our team participated at the European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) which is the biggest conference for education in Europe.
On the third day of the Schoolaboratory 002, while in one corner the kids are creating a rhythm for the new song of the Schoolaboratory, in the other corner one part of us together with the mothers of the youngest kids living in Ledine are creating the idea of a new didactic wall - "The corner of senses and logic".
Our friends Edin, Selma, Omer and Iva wrote about their impressions from the summer school. Kids may always see things clearer and here's their blog post about ŠK002. This is a text of laughter and friendship. :)
Škograd (Schoolcity) visited Thessaloniki and INSEA’s (International Society for Education through Art) seminar about аrt education. It was more than arty and more than educational experience for us. Between 16-18th of July, we collaborated with people from all over the world who are trying to change the ways our education works. Just like we are trying to break the existing boundaries education puts upon children as well as upon their families and then openly explore how this world works and what is our place in it.
In June we held a second talk on the topic of How We Build Škograd. This series of discussions help us to think about activities on Ledine and find their links to theoretical concepts, other practices, and people working with similar programs.
Hidden behind the title "How We Build Škograd?", constructive and with the question, we open the stage and invite all those who could help us to make our activities even more successful and our reality more equitable. In a series of open conversations with carefully selected guests, in the comfortable atmosphere of the Goethe Institute library, we will try to highlight some of the key topics of our work on Ledine.
Call for participation at one festival, called Design District, we got from Zagreb. We spend the weekend among people, mostly from the sphere of design, looking for those in which we recognize the similarity in thematic frameworks, the way of thinking or methodology of work.
After the school play, in the schoolyard, the place where everything starts before and ends after school, we found a new convenient place for gathering. We are talking and announcing the beginning of a new endeavor: Schoolyard Hub!
With the support of Goethe-Institut Belgrad (Goethe-Institut Belgrad), we spent a few days on the Fluid Design Forum where we shared experiences with the students and designers about the role of design in our engagement in Ledine, the design opportunities in bringing school and neighborhood closer and reaching that it has in our everyday life.
With our associates from school, BINA, Goethe Institute, Faculty of Philosophy and various other stakeholders, we spent a week thinking about the infrastructure of listening. Namely, we started to create a methodology for the participatory design of our outdoor classroom that we are building within the Urban Hub # 2 project.
