Remake Learning Days, America’s largest family-friendly learning festival, is preparing to host its most expansive springtime learning festival yet as it takes root overseas in 2023. The festival’s international schedule includes immersive and hands-on learning events for families in Uruguay (April 27-29, led by E.dúcate Uruguay), Christchurch, NZ (May 8–14, led by Ako Ōtautahi Learning City Christchurch), and Doncaster, UK (May 18–26, led by the Doncaster Council).
This year’s international events will coincide with the 7th annual Remake Learning Days festival, which will host hundreds of learning events across several U.S. states from April 20 to May 26. There are 12 regions across the United States, including Badgerland, Wisconsin; Eastern Kentucky; Kansas City, Missouri; Knoxville, Tennesee; the Suncoast region of Florida; six regions across Pennsylvania; and the state of West Virginia.
Since its origins in southwestern Pennsylvania in 2016, Remake Learning Days has become one of the world’s largest open houses of learning. The festival has hosted more than 3,700 events across the U.S. for pre-K through high-school learners at libraries, schools, tech centers, museums, play spaces, community centers, and more, reaching over 175,000 families.
“Our goal is to create accessible opportunities for families to learn together, to take the time to be curious together and to remember the joy of discovering something new. We’re excited for more families to experience Remake Learning Days as it takes root globally,” said Dorie Taylor, Producer of the Remake Learning Days festival.
“We admire how Remake Learning Days brings families, youth, and educators together and how it fosters a passion for learning in the community. We’re excited to host our inaugural festival and generate a shared movement to bring joy in learning to every corner of the country¨ said Cecilia de la Paz, founder and CEO of E.dúcate Uruguay.
Remake Learning Days encourages families to wonder, explore and learn together. Festival events are organized by different learning themes such as: Arts, Maker, Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology and Youth Voice. There are also Professional Development sessions for school, out-of-school, child care, and non-traditional educators. This spring, families and youth can search events by date/time, location, learning theme, age group (pre-K through high school), and more.
Remake Learning Days is generously funded by The Grable Foundation, led by Remake Learning and supported by partners PBS Kids and Common Sense Media along with 15 lead regional organizations. For more information, visit remakelearningdays.org.
