Call for proposals: 100 DAYS OF LEARNING
What about taking a journey from knowledge to wisdom?
Age of Wonderland invites you to engage in this journey by submitting a day of learning. Send in your ideas and make learning more interesting, fun, rewarding, inclusive and a part of everyday life! Submissions need to be sent before April 20, 2017.
Age of Wonderland invites creative practitioners all over the world to work together to tackle today’s global challenges. 100 DAYS OF LEARNING invites everyone to share their personal experiences by hosting a day of learning. What do you feel we need to learn to make a positive change? For once, we want to ignore the institutions, the professional educators, the commercial seminars, the self-help books, and ask you directly to teach us something that you think is relevant for the future of our planet. Something we can incorporate into our daily lives.
Age of Wonderland invites you to turn your personal experiences into shareable knowledge to enable others to embrace the change you feel we need. Which challenges or moments in your life gave you new insights? Are there key moments in your life which can be turned into a shareable lesson? What motivates you? We’re not interested in textbook knowledge but rather in your experiences that helped you in gaining a new perspective on yourself or the world around you.
Turning lessons into action.
There is no fixed format for a day of learning. Perhaps you’d like to translate your story into a unique setting like a workshop, talk, a walk in a forest, a performance, a poem, a dinner, or a personal encounter. We invite you to translate your perspective into a transferrable ‘act’ or ‘tool’ that can be applied by others enabling them to copy, implement, experience, personalise, hack your concept/recipe/day of learning.
