A Short Video of the Exhibition & Launch


The Change Lab was a critical space for learning, thinking and re-imagining the possibilities of how art and design curriculum in second level can be taught through a development education lens. The exhibition showcased the pedagogical approach and artefacts that the Professional Master in Education teachers created in response to the thematic of LAND and HOME. The work was made and presented from the situated practice of the artist and the educator, activist. The NCAD Gallery was delighted to host The Change Lab exhibition & presentations event.
