Opening Ceremony: Museum of Hidden Lessons

Duration: 3 hours
Finished 26 November 2022
Museums Discovery Centre

Celebrate the opening of the Museum of Hidden Lessons –a temporary tent museum that is the culmination of Hidden Lessons, a 6-month collaborative project between Our Lady of Mercy College, Parramatta and Powerhouse. The project was led by Powerhouse Artistic Associate Lleah Smith with Parramatta Artists’ Studios Artist in Residence Nadia Odlum.  

Hidden Lessons was a student-led, pedagogical project that encouraged learners to interrogate three pillars of their own educational experience: who we learn with, where we learn, and what we learn with. Bringing its learnings, findings and questions to life, we invite you to participate in a series of student-led exercises and games, including scavenger hunts, raffle draws, public picnic, and dialogical exchanges aimed at pushing the edges of how we teach and how we learn.
