Makers, Making and Connecting the World

Wednesday 9 March 2022 7-8pm AEDT

Nigel Howard

Young people on the edge of school are often rendered invisible in the statistics and even in the environment of the school.  One aspect of my work has been keeping young people connected to school and community by making them visible through public and youth arts, working with makers in residence. This session uses case studies to talk about young people writing themselves into the community and the occupying digital global spaces.

Two case studies come from new and emergent schools that are catering for the most disadvantaged young people in the community. One a senior secondary school catering for students who have detached from schooling the other a new independent college which has an Indigenous focus. The webinar ends setting out a case for reimagining curriculum that positions young people as capable world citizens creatively addressing issues of importance to themselves and the community.
