ACT at MIT

The MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology graduate students will set up a temporary school as an intervention into the nested ecosystem of education at MIT. This school will be a subsystem of education where students and the general public will be invited to participate in ACT student-led classes, cinema cycles, exhibitions, discussions, conferences, fellowship, workshops, construction, and celebrations throughout the month of February in the Wiesner Gallery at the Student Center. The intervention will use the structures and conventions of a typical university to explore other ways of learning, sharing, and building knowledge and community.
