Amplify Educators Workshop

Emmanuel Pratt, Radical [Re]Constructions, 2017

In this Amplify professional learning community program, participants can develop lessons and artistic projects that connect learning with critical issues in our communities.

Emmanuel Pratt’s interdisciplinary approach to regenerative placemaking on the South Side of Chicago mixes art, architecture, and community and economic development. Pratt, whose work Radical [Re]Constructions is currently on view at the Smart, will share ways to disrupt unhealthy urban systems through creative intervention and experiential learning.

FREE, but space is limited. Please register in advance.
