In between desks
2018 - Ongoing

The project is documented online:

Au milieu des bureaux empilés is an extensive socially engaged and dialogical art project born from a personal desire to rethink our collective evaluation of credibility in the context of the ongoing debate regarding our education system.

Every phase of the project follows the same first steps. Offering to teach a tea workshop, I infiltrate high schools to transform a classroom into a creative space where youths are safe to reimagine and rebuild the education system.

Once a week, we create a non-hierarchical space where we recognize personal experience as a valid form of knowledge and the act of speaking as a creative act. Most participating youths have never experienced such a space inside their school: the appreciation of their contributions allows them to familiarize themselves with the power inherent to the act of sharing their knowledge about this issue.
