School of Commons (SoC) is a global community-learning space dedicated to the study and development of self-organized knowledge through commons-based methods and practices, located at the Zurich University of the Arts (but taking place mostly online). The structure of SoC brings together practitioners, researchers, facilitators and activists from all disciplines for its main offering of a 10-month peer-led learning programme. Alongside the programme, SoC works with a broad network of partners who help to explore, shape and share the future of Peer Learning as an important strategy and method of lifelong learning.
Since 2017, SoC participants have led 140 transdisciplinary projects. The process and outcome of our research are shared via open-access publications, artistic platforms, workshops, talks, seminars, performances and exhibitions around the world.
