A Film About Informal Learning
for Summer Drafts, curated by Paolo Plotegher
during Manifesta, Bolzano, Italy
July 2008

Informal learning is knowledge, which has not been captured and exists only inside someone’s head. To access that knowledge you have to find the person who can share it with you. Knowledge is worthless if you keep it to yourself.
Working with the group Giant-Bi as a starting point, we set off on a journey to find ‘informal learning’ taking place between individuals and groups in Bolzano. Because the nature of informal learning is responsive, it is impossible to know the outcome in advance. It works through, and is driven by, conversation. It involves exploring and enlarging experience and it can take place anywhere.
