Remedial learning examines the notion of a ‘remedial class’ as a curative, reparative or compensatory way of learning. The idea of a remedial class suggests a transformation in order to fit in with things as they are, while suppressing the symptoms of alterity. Remedial learning attempts to reimagine the potential for radical transformation by asserting decentralised bodies of knowledge.

Remedial learning is presented as a one day ‘remedial class’ exploring the potential for physical, cultural and environmental healing through a series of drop-in workshops and opportunities for knowledge exchange.
