CALL FOR UNPRECEDENTED DIRECTOR(S)

Evening Class is seeking unprecedented director(s) to take over our next curatorial group (class). We are open to varying levels of involvement – from a fully integrated participation in the curatorial group, to remote curation of just one event.

Evening Class meets twice a week. The theme of the classes changes every 2~3 months. Past themes have included alternative ways of working together, co-operativism, self-organisation, alternative education, the area of Aberfeldy street (where we are located), forms of political graphic design, performing identity and many other subtopics. Classes can take any form (e.g.: discussions, workshops, performances, group crits, lectures, film screenings, silent walks, group readings, blind dating etc.)

For the forthcoming curatorial group, starting mid September, we are interested in experimenting with interventions from practitioners outside of the group in order to explore how this may affect the group dynamics and mutual learning processes.

There is no formal application process: if you are interested in participating please email everyone@evening-class.org by August 7th with some details of how you might like to be involved.

(Evening Class is a self-organised design education experiment; a flexible environment in which participants can cultivate common interests, develop their research and collectively shape the class’s agenda. It is currently based in Poplar, London.
Participants reflect on their practices in wider cultural, social and political contexts and work closely with London’s different landscapes.

They create their own audience, learn from it and engage with it.
The process of the group’s evolution is transparent: Evening Class intends to make the programme’s materials and references accessible to a wider audience.

The programme currently consists of around 20 participants from different educational and cultural backgrounds, who form an active and collaborative partnership.

The curation of the classes takes many forms and explores different themes. Speakers and mentors are invited in relation to the current programme.)
