Recently the Public Pedagogies Institute held a Pop Up School in Station Place Werribee on September 1, 2017. This event showcased the breadth of knowledge in the Werribee Community. The Institute was invited to curate this event as the key activity to launch the annual Wyndham Learning Festival.
Like its predecessor the Footscray Pop Up School, the Werribee project has also consisted of interviews with members of the Werribee community around the theme of significant knowledge in Werribee. These interviews will continue into the new year and will be published as ‘Toward a Werribee Curriculum.’
Discussion is now under way for a similar project in Point Cook in 2018. If you are interested in a Pop Up School in your suburb or town please contact the Public Pedagogies Institute.
