MILESKM

In 2015 MilesKm has created a touring Art School, moving around the UK, challenging the concept of the classroom, the roles of the student and teacher, and experimenting with different learning structures.

 

TANTEO aims create space for learning and knowledge sharing, a radical environment to stimulate creativity and the potential political power of art. An approach to education, a tanteo, (an approximation). The project is both an investigation into the nature of arts education and the role of collaboration in learning. An endeavor to force the limits of what constitutes a “School of Art”.

 

This weekend Mileskm will be holding two days of workshops open to the public. The workshops will take multiple formats and will be a diverse collection of attempt to navigate knowledge production and mapping. The workshops have been created with a wide ranging audience in mind, so should be accessible to all that would like to attend.

SUNDAY 5TH JULY

11am – Hamish MacPherson – Ouija Parliament is a score or practice whereby a group of people use various materials to produce – without planning – a physical environment.

4:30pm – Jess Bryant – Throughout the day Jess Bryant will be inviting the Tanteo participants and all visitors to Turf to rename the spaces and objects within the gallery. At the end of the day all are welcome to join us to reflect on this process, to explore what has been retitled, to question to see what has changed and to ask how this process might develop in the coming weeks whilst Mileskm tour around the country visiting other art spaces.
