We’d love you to help us make this event as much fun as it can be. If you’re interested in volunteering, please get in touch at rota@openlearningireland.com. We have some limited workshop slots available too. If you’ve got an idea for a workshop or lecture, propose it here.

Open Learning Ireland

Open Learning Ireland is a volunteer run group working to create an alternative educational model in Ireland. We want to create a new all ages education space in Dublin, where anyone can come to learn or teach anything that ‘takes their fancy’. To spread the idea, we’ve been running a series of PopUp learning days. The first as part of the Office Of Non-Compliance at the Dublin Contemporary 2011 Exhibition, and the most recent as part of the DIY Skillshare festival.

Taking part in these unstructured peer learning workshops helped inform the ideas behind Open Learning Ireland. Most recently, MarQu and Andrew Edgar of Gamepak helped organise the Open Learning hacklab at our week long festival of learning.
