A series of exhibitions, workshops, and lectures from artist collectives sunday school, home school, and We‘re Hir, We’re Queer. Exploring collectivization as a means to generate forms of art education grounded in accessibility and non-hierarchical cooperation, Summer Sessions is an attempt to rethink what pedagogy is, can be, or should be.
As a community-centered organization, SLEEPCENTER puts education at the core of our missions. Alongside to our curatorial programs, education at SLEEPCENTER comes in various forms and shapes, such as free and public accessible art and culture classes and events for the local youth, alternative experimental studies on methods of art education, collaborative panels and workshops to resolve practical and social-political issue, research and exploration on trans-disciplinary education application and approaches, and more.
SLEEPCENTER’s Public Education Fellowship is a pilot program. The fellowship invites and supports both independent and institutional educators, scholars and researchers to employ our space and resources during summer months, to carry out free and accessible innovative art education programs, for our neighbors in the city and many communities around the globe.
