Antioch students organize skill-share

Everyone has something to learn, and everyone has something to teach. That’s the idea behind a skill-sharing, a type of education described as community-based, non-competitive and intergenerational.

At a skill-sharing workshop organized by Antioch College students from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24, in McGregor Hall. The sessions, taught by students, faculty, alumni and local community members, are all free and open to the public.

Participants will make their own individual pieces, which will later be joined together to create a plastic quilt to be displayed on campus and in the community. That workshop will be at the sculpture annex next to the Antioch Amphitheater from 1 to 5 p.m.
