Projects - Overview

ELAB develops and implements art-based learning programs for schools, primarily for middle schools and high schools. These programs are designed to be integrated into the school curriculum in areas such as inquiry-based learning, liberal arts, leadership development, and diversity education.

 

We also collaborate with organizations working in the field of learning and development, to offer powerful leadership programs integrating active learning and art-based learning, as well as programs which empower the next generation of leaders to solve the world’s biggest challenges today.

EGAKU the Future Program

EGAKU the Future Program brings together the art-based learning experience of the EGAKU Program with design thinking and active learning, to create a self-directed and dialogue-based learning experience which nurtures individuals’ creative confidence. We believe that creative confidence holds the key to enhance the quality of the inquiry-based learning experience.
