Hidden Lessons was created in Sydney on Darug Land as a student-led project. It explored how lessons from the pandemic might be applied to future teaching models.
The program was developed by Lleah Smith, Artistic Associate of Powerhouse and Nadia Odlum, Artist in Residence at Parramatta Artists Studios.
Students from Our Lady of Mercy College Parramatta were invited to question their educational experience: who we learn with, where we learn, and what we learn with in the wake of Covid-19.
They were then encouraged to create their own temporary Museum of Hidden Lessons, drawing on their collective knowledge and choosing objects of everyday life from the Powerhouse Collection.
This ‘museum’ sits alongside a display of Powerhouse Collection objects explored through the project.
