ASAP MANIFESTO

 

Art education is becoming more privatized. Schools have reduced weekly art workshops to monthly, if they still have them; museums are reducing the number of programs they offer and are charging more and more for programs that used to be free. All while art school tuitions continue to skyrocket.
 

Arts education should be available to everyone.


ASAP is an arts education collective with a faculty and student population that is always in flux. Loosely inspired by the "free skool," ASAP is based on volunteerism and a gift economy, not monetary capital. The school is free and open to the public, the spaces are donated, and the faculty and facilitators volunteer. ASAP regularly invites cultural producers who represent a variety of practices to participate in our nomadic teaching institution.
