About + Useful info

The Education Service is a laboratory for people of all ages and skills, focusing on creativity, debate and experimentation. Our motto is: things don’t have a single point of view. As a democratic endeavour, education assumes an idea of the future in its incorporation, provision, and legitimation of specific practices of social life. With the collaboration of various experts, educators, architects, writers, artists, scientists, we propose new experiences that convey the complexities of the world, sharing a participatory, humanistic, rather than economistic, understanding of learning.
We have developed a programme of visits, workshops, talks, open days, walks and circuits in the city. Founded in the main contents of Close, Closer, these activities encourage the public to cultivate talents, enrich their collective stories, and contribute to a shared meaningful outcome.
