Learning, Transforming, Technique – 2015 and beyond
Learning, Transforming, Technique is an annual experimental pedagogy weekend intensive. It is run in collaboration with Create-Ahh, a community project based at Melin Dolwion in Drefach Felindre.
Learning, Transforming, Technique creates a supportive atmosphere – an exploratory laboratory – where teachers can try out new ideas for mixed-ability learning.
Contributions are multi-disciplinary and have included sewing, orange peel sculpture, puppetry, film-making, collective drawing, creating a dictionary, chess, critical theory, performance, movement, improvisation, forum theatre, pedal looping, storytelling, songwriting – just about anything really. What unites Learning, Transforming, Technique is the generous way participants take part in it.
Each year has a theme which arises from the previous year.
For 2019 – and the fifth Learning, Transforming, Technique – it is nourishment – hugely appropriate for an event adored for its sumptuous catering as much as its stimulating activities.
