The first historical cornerstone of Holden Didactics is Original (two years in which to train and make narration your job). In 2020/21 this course has been transformed in Crazy Original, though. Over 30, on the other hand, is the school for adults who have followed other paths in life but have kept their spirit of adventure.
Academy lessons started on October 22nd 2019, the first degree course for writing in Italy. The goal being to teach (via seven Disciplines and writing gestures) the mental capacities necessary for living in and changing today’s world.
The WonderLabs & Online are shorter courses that can be taken in Turin, around Italy or online: you can choose to give your passion a new voice and have a bit of a laugh or focus on advanced training workshops.
Learning should always be a feeling and a way of connecting different worlds that would otherwise be distant from each other. For this reason, the school shares teaching methods with those who work within training. It also commits itself to give young people a better understanding of the amazing values within reading, writing and telling stories. We do this thanks to the work of the Fronte del Borgo and the Holden school projects. It would be nice to one day have a bit of Holden Caulfield’s spirit in all of the world’s schools.
