Inspiring and enabling arts students to define the future of their own educational experience…

20 Projects in collaboration with IMT Gallery present It Started With A Car Crash: Alternative Educational Road Tour.

Hosted by the Bruce High Quality Foundation, It Started With A Car Crash: Alternative Educational Road Tour is a special event that gets to the core of debates within and around alternative networks of arts education and artwork dissemination. What do art schools represent? How can learning environments be organized? What is the role of arts education? The Bruce High Quality Foundation set up their own University in 2009, and in 2011 they embarked on a coast-to-coast road trip of America visiting educational institutions, project spaces, groups and individuals, documented in their work Teach4Amerika (2011).

Crossing the Atlantic the Bruce High Quality Foundation will be joined by leading UK groups and collectives engaged in alternative systems of educational organization and interrogation in a series of presentations, workshop sessions, and screenings that consider the social, political and economic questions underpinning today's arts educational environments.
