New exhibition reveals the fascinating world of urban learning

7 August 2017

'A new exhibition celebrating the people and projects which make up Bristol’s rich tapestry of learning is coming to Hamilton House.

Learning City: A Self-Portrait' runs from 25 August to 5 September and explores the different ways people learn and how spaces, people and objects support that learning. 

An interactive display brings together photographs, film, drawing, personal stories, craft objects and cultural artefacts to capture the ethnographic work of researchers at the University of Bristol, supported by community researchers.

The focus is on how people learn outside of the structured education system, whether it's through community centres, theatre groups, protests or charities.

Researcher Dr Magda Buchczyk, from the School of Education at the University of Bristol, said: "The exhibition will reveal the fascinating world of urban learning that is often overlooked in educational research. We hope the public will come along and take a closer look at something that surrounds us but is often taken for granted."
