Stages of Learning

Stages of Learning is a one-month pilot program taking place in Philadelphia in spring 2021. Artists, designers, and activists that engage modes of collaboration in their work, assemble to lead generative conversation through workshops, performances, lectures, facilitated reflections, and collective research. These activities will be led by experienced practitioners and will take place in weekly sessions over the month across varying community and learning centers in Philadelphia.

Each Stages of Learning session will be set in a collaboratively designed learning environment co-created by session leaders, PennPraxis Design Fellows, and institutional partners. These environments will serve both to host sessions and as a roaming study center when they are not activated. At the culmination of the month, the furniture will be donated to the hosting institutions.

The project is also being supported by a grant from the Sachs Program for Arts Innovation.
