What is the most tangible, global representation of school? The backpack. It stored our hopes, challenges, directives, tools, knick knacks, and knowledge during our formative years. Today, with public education a victim of market forces, Mauricio and Sophia Forero use the backpack to illustrate the intense, personal capabilities of education. They present a scenario of empty backpacks in a mock market setting, and invite participants to share their individual school memories with photographs and stories.
