If You Build It
January 11 @ 7:30pm
Bozeman Field School will present a FREE screening of innovative education documentary If You Build It at The Ellen Theatre on Friday, January 11th. Beginning at 7:30pm, the screening is FREE and open to the public.
If You Build It follows designer-activists Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller to rural Bertie County, the poorest in North Carolina, where they work with local high school students to help transform both their community and their lives. Living on credit and grant money while fighting a change-resistant school board, Pilloton and Miller lead their students through a year-long, full-scale design and build project that does much more than just teach basic construction skills: it shows ten teenagers the power of design-thinking to re-invent not just their town but their own sense of what’s possible.
If You Build It offers a compelling and hopeful vision for a new kind of classroom in which students learn the tools to design their own futures. Watch the trailer and learn more about the film and the project behind it at www.ifyoubuilditmovie.com.
