Assembly: School as a Social Environment

Assembly is a one-day symposium that explores the school environment as a space of social interaction and development.

Assembly is a one-day symposium that explores the school environment as a space of social interaction and development. Accompanying the exhibition School Days: the look of learning, Assembly explores how educational curriculums are shaped and subverted by students and educators, drawing on alternative models of learning proposed by Friedrich Froebel and A.S. Neill’s Summerhill school. Through discussions and talks by artists, curators and academics, this symposium will also look at how education takes place outside the classroom, in cafeterias, corridors and playgrounds, and how these environments shape our learning. Assembly intends to facilitate debate around these ideas through a series of thematic presentations and open discussion. Attendees are invited to submit questions in advance of the symposium. A selection of these questions will be discussed within each thematic session. Speakers include: Architecture and Sociality Dr. Denis Linehan, Department of Geography, University College Cork Raimond Wouda, artist, based in Amsterdam, NL Play and Interaction Corin Sworn, artist, based in Glasgow, UK Dr. Maura Cuneen, Early Years and Childhood Studies Department of Education, University College Cork Discipline and Resistance Dr. Karl Kitchling, Department of Education, University College Cork Ronan McCrea, artist, based in Dublin, IE Spaces are limited so advance booking is recommended.
