The Public School

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL is a school with no curriculum. At the moment, it operates as follows: first, classes are proposed by the public (I want to learn this or I want to teach this); then, people have the opportunity to sign up for the classes (I also want to learn that); finally, when enough people have expressed interest, the school finds a teacher and offers the class to those who signed up.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL is not accredited, it does not give out degrees, and it has no affiliation with the public school system. It is a framework that supports autodidactic activities, operating under the assumption that everything is in everything.

Initiated by Telic Arts Exchange in Los Angeles in 2008. Also exists in Brussels (set up by Komplot in Nadine), Helsinki, Los Angeles, New York City (at Common Room), Paris (at Bétonsalon), Philadelphia, San Juan.
