In a new interview with CMRubinWorld, Dustin Yellin discusses his “museum of process,” a modern multi-disciplinary institute where a community of learners can focus on addressing global challenges.
John Dewey, the great American philosopher and a major voice in progressive education theory, once proposed that “the ideal school was in fact not school at all, but a museum.” Dustin Yellin is the Founder of Pioneer Works. His institute in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, New York, is a multi-disciplinary cultural center that combines the arts and sciences along with other disciplines such as tech, cuisine, and horticulture that expose its visitors to the latest knowledge and thought leadership on universal challenges such as the climate crisis and the impact of artificial intelligence on humanity. Yellin tells C.M.Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld, that the learning experience at Pioneer Works is “predicated on exchange and production, and not on consumption or distribution alone.” Through Pioneer Works, Yellin hopes that viewers will “come together as people to have a sober discussion on the pros and cons” of technological advancements, “and figure out a way to organize it in the most equitable way possible”.
