Taller Nube Favorite 




Taller Nube is an activist art-education program in Los Condes, Chile where artists work collaboratively with children to navigate an open learning environment in public spaces. In Nube's philosophy, a park is a school, a museum is a school, the city and the home are schools with much to teach and be taught. The children are encouraged to approach these spaces with their natural instincts of play instead of the hegemonic instinct of following rules. The museum, for example, turns into a playground when stripped of the "do not touch" policy. The park becomes a space to view and reflect instead of just errant play. In subverting the hierarchical structure of both education and public space, Taller Nube is promoting critical arts thinking as a tool that is useful beyond the arts space. Or that perhaps the world itself is the arts space to be critiqued and edited as much as possible.
