The unusual learning experiment devised by artists

Help

Andrew Graham-Dixon visits the Wide Open School at London's South Bank Centre where more than 100 artists are running classes and workshops in an experiment in public learning.

It provides a platform for people to engage directly with artists from all over the world and to actively participate in courses fuelled by their imaginations.
