Based in a collaborative pedagogy that considers all participants as active knowledge-creators, these projects occur in Art Galleries, afterschool programs, libraries, community centres, and the empty fields behind them.

What is a Library?

Inspired by post-war Adventure Playgrounds, free toy libraries, book mobiles and survival kits, this project invited each participant to design and create their own unique ‘kit’. The kits contained advice, instructions, recipes, stories, games and other forms of self-generated knowledge. The kits were inventoried and a sign-out system set up.
