How can we creatively re-imagine urban education?
We’re quite excited to be presenting at the Ripple Conference (here) on April 24th at the University of Chicago and surprised to be sharing a program with none other than Bill Ayers! It’s too early to say how this is going to impact our future political careers but we’re pretty pleased with the event topics and what promises to be a diverse group of people talking about re-thinking urban education. Alex Gilliam, the Director of Public Workshop will be talking about his work turning the city into a classroom and directly engaging youth in changing the places the live, learn and play.
In short, why he thinks children should be the architects and planners of 21st century Chicago.
Interested? Of course you are.
The event is free and open to the public. Alex will be presenting at 3:10, stop on by and say hello.
