Polymathic Labs

Polymathy values different ways of learning, knowing, and being, ranging from the written word to various modes of embodiment and creative practice. A new initiative of the Academy, the Polymathic Lab will extend its integrative learning to the tactile and haptic, offering students a space for experimentation, play, and creative exploration. Through workshops on design, digital authoring, and other creative endeavors, we will explore the value of making to polymathic inquiry. A roster of visiting artists, designers, and makers will join us to expand our thinking about the potentials of polymathic practice.
