Spring 2018 Contemporary Classrooms

In collaboration with an exhibiting SoEx artist or project

Southern Exposure's Contemporary Classrooms is an ongoing series of workshops that take place in SFUSD high school classrooms, formulated in collaboration with an exhibiting SoEx artist or project. This spring, the workshops will respond to a concurrent exhibition at Southern Exposure of works by our Youth Advisory Board reflecting on the effects of climate change in San Francisco through the lens of science fiction. Serving teachers and youth from 10 local high schools, the workshops will use the concept of “science fiction based on science fact” as a starting point for high school students to confront the effects of climate change with their own ideas. Contemporary Classroom participants will be encouraged to attend the exhibition and programming events in the spring of 2018.

We are hiring a Teaching Artist for this program! Deadline to apply: November 10, 2017.
