// Second part of the 20 Forint Operetta. A street university exploring and transforming urban public spaces by means of performative methods and common reflections.
// 2013, May-October
The street university is based on non-hierarchical learning. It brings together different actors of society in order to create and transfer common knowledge. In the summer of 2013, we made excursions
in the 8th district of Budapest, got in dialog with inhabitants and civil networks, formed a public choir and founded a local newspaper.
Activities in the frame of the Wandering Street University:
* a choir workshop led by Salam Yousry (Egypt) in Budapest. As a result our local street action choir BKK (Insider Outsiders) was formed. This choir is now allied to Pneuma’s activities, different demonstrations on housing issues, street actions, squat actions.
