A creative experiment in learning designed by & for young people

1st - 12th August 2023

Welcome to The Other~Wise Summer School, a yearly programme of FREE creative workshops, cultural activities and critical conversations designed by The Culture Collective for other young people aged 15 - 21. 


Each year we choose a topic that we feel is important and relevant to our lives and the world we live in but is lacking in mainstream education - asking ourselves 'what if...?'. This year's theme is ~

 What if we learnt to re-connect with nature? 

We invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we learn how to re-connect with nature, 

re-imagine our education, be inspired & open our minds to new possibilities...
