Re-imagining the Art School: Pandemic Paragogies 
– workshop and symposium

Neil Mulholland
Host: Professor Magnus Quaife

In his 2019 publication, Re-Imagining the Art School, Professor Neil Mulholland proposed ‘paragogic’ methods to re-imagine the art academy. With Mulholland as the main guest, this research day revolves around open source and peer-to-peer methods for re-imagining the art academy (para-academia) and andragogy (paragogy). Responses and provocations are invited from staff and students currently working in art school environments.

The day will include a workshop version of the Open Educational Resource facilitated by Mulholland and Quaife.
