Program

Due to Covid-19 emergency and the international travel restrictions WeTell School 2020 will run online. 

WeTell School turns the emergency into AN OPPORTUNITY to explore new interactive forms of sharing and exploring knowledge and realities through storytelling.

Our program has been reorganized along FOUR WEEKS, starting from November 2nd. We have adjusted our timetable to the new habitat, shifting the idea of INTENSIVE from GEOLOCATED SPACE to QUALITY TIME.

Originally conceived as an intensive and immersive experience in Bologna, WeTell 2020 is now rethought as an online experience combining LIVE SESSIONS and GUIDED SELF-LEARNING. The intent is to customize our learning path and accommodate different needs, also depending on a series of environmental factors that are still difficult to predict.

Our School focuses on the notions of DISSENT and VULNERABILITY as LIBERTARIAN AND RESPONSIBLE PRACTICES to become active citizens, not as populistic or nihilistic attitudes.

You will learn to appreciate dissent and vulnerability as SOCIAL DEVICES that relate to CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY, to ACT THROUGH LANGUAGE AND MEDIA upon a variety of discourses employed by institutions, agencies of power, corporations.

You will turn from IRONIC SPECTATORS TO ACTIVE THINKERS through seminars, charrettes, workshops and more.
