Future Arts and Learning Alternatives

Since our pilot workshop in 2021, Future Arts and Learning Alternatives (FALA) have been studying how to catalyze self-learning in rural educational development. Through our experimental base in ChauddaChulli, West Bengal, India, we’re committed to exploring holistic learning spaces by creating community-driven, interactive, and fluid educational models. We welcome you to look through our projects and continuing research.

About Us

FALA was initiated by a group of students at the Ringling College of Art and Design. With additional support from the Turiyo Foundation, it was able to come alive by initiating a workshop in the rural village of Chauddachuli, which is found in a cluster of villages in the Purba Medinipur District of West Bengal, India. This one-month intensive workshop, funded by the Davis projects for peace grant, enabled us to study potential frameworks to help identify self-learners in a rural community of West Bengal, who were capable of sustaining Fala's long term mission of self-directed learning.

The beautiful coastal village of Chauddachuli sits deep inside a cluster of villages and can be found through the winding roads of West Bengal's paddy fields. With the Turiyo Foundation, FALA is trying to bring a digital voice to this urban-rural community through collaboration with the local leaders and volunteers.
