School of Integrationis a new commission by leading Cuban artist and activist Tania Bruguerafor Manchester International Festival 2019. Local people and those who have migrated from countries around the world will give free classes on a curriculum that includes languages, culture, ethics, politics, economics and many other forms of knowledge. Open and free to all the school will run classes daily from Friday 5 July to Saturday 20 July. Every teacher will pass on their experiences to anyone interested in developing new skills, resulting in a new kind of shared learning experience. Shifting the responsibility of integration from the immigrant to the wider community, this new work draws Manchester closer to those who have made the city their home.
