Submissions are open for the first issue of URgh! We welcome contributions that explore and document alternative art education within self-organised, DIY, peer-led art schools and collectives.
Fuelled by economic crisis, austerity and the liberalisation of higher education, alternative art education has burgeoned into a full-blown movement. But what is alternative art education and who is it for? There are as many different formats and models of alternative art education as there are alt art schools and peer groups, but in what ways is alternative art education different from traditional art education?
The zine will be launched on 21 March 2020 at the Festival of Alternative Art Education 2020 at Conway Hall. Contributors will receive a free copy.
Deadline 22 February 2020
