Our board and working committee will give its members the unique opportunity and challenge of working in a fully democratic environment… it’s a philosophy that is carried from our programs right down to our board and committees!
Democratic education compliments and enhances creative education. It teaches students to employ and further enable their creative practices in a community setting. Creative practices begin with the self. They include self-direction, self-regulation, self-governance, self-contemplation, self-evaluation, self-awareness. To offer them in a community setting means the group must also be self-directed, self-regulated, self-governed, self-contemplative, self-reflective, self-evaluative and self-aware… equaling a democratic learning environment.
