Who?

We are educators who follow good leads from Montessori, Dewey, Freire, Boal, and everyday artists. With low cost creativity that includes reading aloud, publishing on clotheslines, recycling, and improvising poetic duels, Pre-Texts recognizes local cultures as resources for learning anything. When we admired a Peruvian Cartonera that makes beautiful books from used cardboard, the publishers said the real challenge was to create readers. Their solution was simple: “Treat books like raw material for making more art, not like sacred objects.”
