On the 28th August at 3.30pm performance artist Lottie Child and a group of people, mostly children, who live and work around Via Garibaldi in Venice, will lead a Street Training session for architects and planners. The session will invert educational hierarchies, with adult professionals being trained by children in imaginative responses to the built environment. We will explore the relations between the built infrastructure and the social infrastructure in terms of safety and joy.

I met with a group of Venetian teachers in June to explore ways in which drawing and close looking can be applied in new ways in their teaching. I wanted to provide an opportunity for them to look again at the area around Via Garibaldi, introduce them to the British pavilion and the work of muf for the architecture Biennale. We worked with the Biennale education department to enable these links with local schools. This is the first time an architecture practice, exhibiting at the Biennale, has worked with local schools.
