Footnotes: Annotating the Future of Arts Education

Footnotes is a Summer School for academics, professionals, students and curious people organised by School of Commons. It will take place from 29 August to 1 September 2022, on the campus of the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). Footnotes is conceived as a Live Action Role-Playing Game, which will unfurl from a speculative scenario. Assume a fictional character to interpret and design future realities. No prior experience needed.

Footnotes will be split into three workshop days and two conference days. You can register for the workshops and the conference separately, but you are also welcome to attend both. Choose between seven groups, each exploring a specific theme: Digital Cultures of Education, Art and Society, Inter- and Transdisciplinarity, Knowledge Commons, Institutional Structures and Strategies, Ecological and Social Sustainability, the Institutional vs. the Non-Institutional.

A debrief dinner on the last night will return us back to our present time and allow us to reflect on the ‘lessons learned’ during play.
