On Friday, TELIC will host an open house/ orientation for The Public School,
culminating in a Richtfest, with a toast to the new school at 8pm. You are
invited throughout the day to learn more about how the school works, propose
new classes, and sign up for classes that have already been proposed.
The Public School is a school with no curriculum, located underneath TELIC Arts
Exchange. It operates as follows: first, classes are proposed by the public (I want
to learn this or I want to teach that); then, people have the opportunity to sign up for
the classes (I also want to learn that); finally, when enough people have expressed
interest, the school will find a teacher and offer the class to those who signed up.

A Richtfest (or “construction celebration”) is a German tradition that is held when a
building under construction reaches its highest point, but before it is finished. It
celebrates the structure as an idea.
The Public School will officially open in January 2008. For more information, contact thepublicschool (at) telic (dot) info or sign up for The Public School email list:
