Each year, Big Picture Learning holds ‘Big Bang’ an international conference on Student-Centered Learning. This conference is an intergenerational collaboration, where students and educators come together to learn from one another and from the community. This year Big Bang took place in Detroit, MI., in late July.
We express gratitude to the following artists who presented along with visitors and supporters;
Frida Braide, Hyunbae Chang, Isabella Chydenius, Liao Dean, Frida Foberg, Hana Falconer, Kyle Giacomo, Colleen Keough, Marie Claire Macadar, Robin McLauglin, Natalie Jauregui Ortiz, Joe Poon, Christina Rosati, Julia Rosen, Josephine Nørtoft Saabye, Rachel Van Wylen
We are so happy to have held our first 'Third-Thursday' of 2019, our new monthly night of sharing works. With pieces and performances from artists, guests, local community members and Fellows, the evening revolved around the theme of 'ordinary days', attempting to rediscover and explore the things happening around us that are often given little intention or attention. Involving everyone, artists, guests, local community and fellows, Third-Thursday is a time and place for participation, inspiration, and creative exchange.
This Fall we had the great honor of contributing to the ‘Future Unknown’ Chancellor’s Summit held at The Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing, China. The project grew from careful consideration of the mission and vision of CAFA and the principles driving the “Future Unknown” initiative to move art and innovation forward by building linkages to many educational and cultural locations around the globe.
