Practical Fridays was a workshop series, founded and coordinated by artist Philip Matesic from 2013 until 2019. The series expanded practically on Theory Tuesdays, a nonacademic platform for theoretical discussion. Instead of discussing a theoretical text, participants had a hands-on, collective experience of learning something practical from a non-professional. Each workshop was run by a different person at various locations in Zurich, Switzerland.
Both Practical Fridays and Theory Tuesdays enact the idea that everyone has a skill or interest that can be shared with others in an informal setting, offering a knowledge-based form of exchange.
