Join ASAP from 12:00-5:30 PM for a series of brief workshops, held in room 2.2 of the Old School, focusing on the university and alternative resources that may be used to support lifelong learning. The visiting LA-based collective has extended their “each one teach one” philosophy to incorporate local faculty, students, artists, writers, historians and lifelong learners exploring alternative resources and methods to engage individuals in and around the university.
RSVP is highly recommended. Please email your name, workshops you would like to attend, and your cell phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in, which will be through the red doors at 233 Mott Street. Pre-registered participants who are more than 5 minutes late will lose their seat to walk-up participants. Although unlikely, Workshop times and classrooms are subject to change.
