1525 presents The Lyceum

Free to all

The Lyceum is a social space to facilitate discourse and engage in critical thinking and conversations through an art lens.

The Lyceum is a social space to facilitate discourse and engage in critical thinking and conversations through an art lens. This space is a 2-part event series where talks will be hosted about non-mainstream education, creative failure, activism, and politics of art. The hopes are to, firstly, address what is lacking in education, and how education is not one-size-fits-all, and the way the system fails to equip young people with relevant skills and experiences to get into the workforce.

In the second session, we will attempt to share and illustrate real life practice in relation to liberation, and the systems at work across the globe, and how these can be meaningfully addressed.

Glossary

Lyceum, as a word is rooted in education, and has various forms with many meanings; here we’ve chosen to refer to it as ‘a public forum or performance space’, demonstrating the multifaceted nature of education.

Discourse – written or spoken communication

Critical thinking – deep thinking where you carefully question, analyse, observe and reflect to form an opinion

Liberation – someone and/or something is freed from the control of another
