Amateur Hour with the Best Friends Learning Gang

Wednesday, December 17th // 7-10pm
Email with proposals and to RSVP
with Danielle Bustillo and Joey Canizarro

The Best Friends Learning Gang is an experiment “that engages in learning as an embodied, decentralized, undisciplined activity.” They host “Amateur Hours” around Los Angeles and beyond, which challenge traditional top-down models of education. Instead their workshops are leaderless, nobody knows what’s going on anymore than the next person, participants have to work together to figure out how to do what they want to do, and what it is they’re doing.

So here’s how it’ll work. Email describing a workshop you’d like the Best Friends Learning Gang to host. Push the limits! No project is too big or small! Failure is encouraged! We here at Machine Project will then pick one of your ideas and acquire everything needed to make it happen. On December 16th, anyone who wants to be a part of the gang can come to Machine Project and together you’ll lead Machine’s first all amateur-led workshop. All are encouraged to submit proposals and participate.
