Skill Party is the result of a series of workshops exploring the space between the artist, teacher, and student, and the interaction between these modes.
It is a participatory project in which the process is as much the work as is the outcome. We are artists learning to become teachers, education researchers, and socially engaged activists working in public schools.
Collaboration, participation, and social engagement are core values in guiding our explorations. The work in the show includes collaborative art works, documentation from workshops, individual art work, and classroom work with young students.
