Unshackling Education: Questions. Reflections. Suggestions, chronicles the life of a young Kenyan boy grappling between life in Nairobi’s informal settlements and the disconnection he faces with what and how he is learning in school.
In 2012, the agenda to school the world is largely unchecked. Governments, corporations and development organizations promote schooling as the only, and most important form of learning, with little questioning of how the western formal schooling model and curriculum has displaced indigenous knowledges, and does not teach students how to survive in their environment. Unshackling Education, is an invitation to discuss how we can make learning more relevant to students’ lived experiences and co-create alternative learning spaces which nurture creativity and community.
Showtimes: July 3 – 5 at 7:00pm to 8:00pm
