As part of "The Festival of Ideas for the New City", Skillshare will be hosting Learnapalooza! Based on the format of Barcamp, Learnapalooza will be an open, participatory learning environment where all attendees will teach short / quick-fire classes (15 or 30 minutes).
All attendees are encouraged to present or facilitate a class. All attendees must teach something, share a skill, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event.
All classes are scheduled the day they happen. Teachers must prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. The people present at the event will select the classes they want to see.
Skillshare will provide refreshments and light snacks. We'll also have a projector and a real classroom for you to use. Yes, a real classroom with two chalkboards and desks. It'll be like high school all over again, but much cooler!
Note: The Festival of Ideas for the New City is a major new collaborative initiative in New York involving scores of Downtown organizations working together to harness the power of the creative community to imagine the future city and explore ideas that will shape it. The Festival will include a three-day slate of symposia; an innovative StreetFest along the Bowery; and over eighty independent projects and public events.
