The bus looks to the future of technology, art and education with workshops, panel discussions and peace
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, the premier state-of-the-art mobile production facility that provides hands-on experiences for students of all ages, tours throughout the world each year. Each stop hosts a variety of events, including tours of the bus studios, hands-on experiences with the latest technology and curriculum, performances, giveaways and panel discussions on the future of technology, education and the arts.
“Over the last few years the Lennon Buses have created residencies designed to engage communities in creative activities,” says Brian Rothschild, co-founder and executive director of Lennon Bus. “It is also exciting to see the curriculum and work of the Lennon Bus continue to widen its global reach.”
At each stop, on-board producer/engineers conduct tours of the studios and give an exclusive look at the latest in music, audio, video and broadcast technologies. Visitors learn how the Lennon Bus crew works with students to write, record and produce original songs, music videos, documentaries and live multi-camera productions.
The Lennon Bus hosts presentations and special performances. Attendees receive a sneak peek at the Lennon Bus curriculum which uses John and Yoko’s life and music to engage students in conversations and activities around the topics of peace, empathy, activism, immigration and more. There is also a panel discussion titled, “Imagine: The Future of Technology, Education and the Arts.”
The Lennon Bus has visited more than 2,500 schools across thirteen countries, working with more than five million students since its founding in 1998. With its continued expansion in Europe, the organization renews its commitment to enriching young creative minds across the globe.
