These experiential workshops are set up acknowledging that change (and learning) manifest through our brains as well as through our bodies.

Visual literacy and Visual Cultures

courses in understanding the structures of visual communication

Understanding how photographs make meaning. Acquiring a practice of interpretation by experimenting with the principles of visual language, and a critical eye to confront the overload of visual propaganda.

  • Individual and team based experiments combining visual rules.
  • Image analysis, connoted meaning and context.
  • Exercises that offer active forms of lifelong self-learning, stimulate experimentation and creativity while enabling critical thinking.

What we do, and how we do it, needs to be shared, understood, pedagogically defined and mobilized through our practice. This is the base of our self-actualization workshops.

  • Embodied exercises to dismantle the central position of the “institutional teacher”.
  • Study case scenarios to dissect critical repetitive situations.
  • The application of memetics to assess complex behavior.
  • Methods to engage students to critique, make suggestions, take part of the process.
  • Tools for building up caring attitudes, and sense of community.
  • Play as learning activator.
