Project Zero: Celebrating 50 Years

Founded in 1967 as an investigation of arts education, Project Zero turned 50 years old in 2017 and now encompasses research in topics ranging from understanding and creativity to interdisciplinary learning and ethics.

On October 13, 2017, PZ held a public forum at the Harvard Graduate School of Education to celebrate this milestone, reminiscing on half a century of contributions to the field of education and beyond, and looking forward to the future as a center of innovative thinking.

Speakers at this forum included:

  • James Ryan, Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education
  • Drew Faust, President of Harvard University
  • Daniel Wilson, Director of Project Zero 
  • Howard Gardner, Principal Investigator and former Co-Director at Project Zero
  • David Perkins, Principal Investigator and former Co-Director at Project Zero
  • Shari Tishman, Principal Investigator and former Director at Project Zero
  • Steve Seidel, Principal Investigator and former Director at Project Zero

A video of this event is available below. Throughout the year, PZ will be commemorating its 50th year through particular themes and events. Check their website for more information.
