Venue: Plymouth College of Art, Tavistock Pl, Plymouth PL4 8AT

Organiser: Pete Kingston

Pete Kingston is a practitioner of socially investigative art and an MA student on Creative Education: Making Learning at Plymouth College of Art. His current work as both artist and educationalist examines the tensions between art and education, and in the relationships between artist/teacher and public/learner (respectively and interconnectedly), to explore empowerment and emancipation in education.

What do you know? What have you learned? What little things make your life easier, and what lessons or advice would you like to share with the world?

Join Pete Kingston in exploring our everyday knowledges as he celebrates (and tries to record) our working knowledges, the teachings we receive at the university of life. When does knowing something become useful, and how much is learned and never used? What fascinates you, what are you proud of having learnt? For example, Pete is strangely proud of a knot he claims to have invented, which means he never has to tie his shoelaces again. Skills, hobbies, life hacks, common sense or arcane knowledges, come share your life lessons – and learn from other peoples’ – at The Knowledge Store.
