School of Commons (SoC) is an initiative dedicated to the study and development of self-directed Peer Learning, located at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). SoC represents an international community of practitioners, artists, designers and researchers who focus on matters surrounding the production and mediation of knowledge with a common interest in self-directed practices.

Since 2017, SoC participants have led sixty transdisciplinary Projects. The process and outcome of our research is shared via open access publications, artistic platforms, workshops, talks, seminars, performances and exhibitions around the World. Since its beginnings in 2017, School of Commons has been building an international Network of interesting partners to explore, share and shape the future of Peer Learning as an important strategy and method of lifelong learning.
