a collective art project
Tomorrow's School is empowering people from all over the globe to co-create an art gallery promoting a new educative system.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
Create an artwork representing an aspect of the school of the future. More information on how to craft it below.
Send it to email@example.com
Your artwork will be published on this website & social media so the world gets inspired by it!
You can also join our upcoming online workshop to learn how to create your artwork, surrounded by great international individuals from all ages! Learn more here.
CREATIVITY IS THE KEY FOR CHANGE
Art has proven to be a powerful tool for social change. On the other hand, the school’s characteristic trait is to suppress creativity in students, which makes using this medium even more meaningful.
ONLY A DIVERSE COMMUNITY CAN SHAPE THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION
The current school system was designed by a bunch of privileged individuals. No wonder why it doesn’t fit most of us! Tomorrow’s school must be built by a large group of people from all backgrounds.
Contributing to this movement is also about reclaiming the right to express ourselves through art and breaking free from limiting beliefs taught at school. Your voice matters!
TOMORROW’S SCHOOL IS ONLY THE FIRST STEP
Before building a new education system, we need a vision. Art will bring it to life.
Next? Changing the system, of course. How? We'll discover it on the way. What's for sure is that without dreaming about it, we won't go anywhere.
WHAT TO SEND
- Your artwork in JPEG or MP4
- A title for your artwork
- A short text (100 words max) to describe your idea
- Your nationality (could be "citizen of the world")
- Your age
- 3 keywords to define yourself (example: mother, software engineer, life's explorer)
- Your pronouns if you wish

- Your @username on Instagram if you want to be tagged on the publication
Your text will appear in English. If your artwork is, for example, a poem, the original and translated-to-English versions will appear.
If you wish your artwork to be published anonymously, it's not preferred but it's possible.
Send everything at once to firstname.lastname@example.org
SUPPORT FOR CREATION
HOW TO FIND MY IDEA?
- Think of your experience at school: What made you upset? What did you love?
- Think of your life's experience: What do you wish you learned before? What are the things school taught you, you had to unlearn?
Some ideas to get inspiration from:
- What will students study?
- How will students study?
- What will students eat?
- At what time school will start in the morning?
- Could it be that, in tomorrow's school, there's a chill room to have a nap?
- Could it be that students will have yoga classes at school?
- Would kids spend more time in nature?
- Will students have more autonomy to create their own education?
- What will the classroom of the future look like?
- What are the skills teachers will need in tomorrow's school?
- What will students learn?
- What will be the place of creativity at school?
WHAT ART MEDIUM SHOULD I USE?
You could use anything. But here are a few ideas:
Digital art; Painting; Land Art; Video; Dance; Poetry; Slam; Drawing; Writing a myth; Photography; Model; Performance; Theater; Sculpture; Music; AI generated art...
It can be figurative or abstract!
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO CREATE. I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START. I NEVER DID IT BEFORE.
First, no shame: you are part of a majority of people! Most of us are the victims of a school system that didn't give us the opportunity to train our creativity, or worse, which punished it.
I am giving monthly online workshops on creativity & the future of education.
How much time should I invest in my creation?
There are no rules and no expectations. You could be good-to-go in half an hour or need a few weeks. Each creative process is unique! Just a recommendation: don't overthink it too much.
I have 0 technical art skills. Is it an issue?
Not at all! The goal is not to create beautiful art, but a meaningful one. Look at the Art Brut movement, which Tomorrow's School is very inspired by. People with no technical skills but a lot to say.
Is there a deadline for submitting my artwork?
There are no deadlines. But I recommend putting one to yourself! It will help you focus. +, the world & I are impatient for you to share your vision of tomorrow's school!
Where will my artwork be shown?
It will be published on this website and on my Instagram: @zeldapoem
I would like to participate with my young kids, do you have best practices to organize this activity as a family?
Awesome! Please, contact me at email@example.com and we will think about it together. I'll set up a guide for other parents thanks to your feedback!
I would like to bring this to my classroom, how should I do it?
YES! I'd love to help. Please contact me whether you are a teacher or a student and no matter the level or subject of the class you're in. We will adapt the proposition depending on your needs. Say hello at firstname.lastname@example.org
