Educating otherwise: Remaking community and care in a design school

Zoy Anastassakis's lecture is part of our continuing education program EDUCATING OTHERWISE developed by Mayar El-Bakry, Maya Ober and Laura Pregger – funded by FHNW Aktionsplan Chancengleichheit 2017-2020.

The lecture is organized around the movement "Esdi Aberta #Uerj Resiste" (Open Esdi #Uerj Resists), in which students, alumni, teachers, employees and the direction of the Superior School of Industrial Design (ESDI), State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), has been experimenting alternative ways of living together in the oldest Brazilian design school, in the midst of a profound political and financial crisis that affects dramatically not only this university but the whole public education in Brazil. At ESDI, at that moment, the setting up for ways of resilience and opening went along with creating care and community among those who inhabited the scholar environment. Following this story, the lecture aims to contribute to the debate about how we can open spaces in the universities and design schools for the collective production of experimental, creative and scholar commons through collaborative practices.
