Tommaso Lana

Tommaso is an award-winning performance and consulting artist, creator of Embodied Learning.

Embodied Learning is a multidisciplinary experiential training program which transforms internal communication and collaboration at work, in learning and health care environments. Embodied Learning sparks the least explored and direct language people have: that of the body.

Between 2005 and 2008, Tommaso worked as manager of visitors services, teaching artist, and facilitator at the permanent interactive exhibit “Experience Field for The Development of The Senses,” Wiesbaden, Germany.

In 2008 he started up his Berlin-based consultancy firm serving educational, social, and political organizations and the museum, hospitality, and tourism industry all across Europe.

In 2010-2011 Tommaso co-directed the German Representative for Cultural and Media Affairs award-winning social-art project “Paradise 2: What is Energy?”.
The project addressed the future of identity and community in regions impacted by vibrant economic and social transitions.

Between 2010 and 2016 he designed, crafted, and curated the “Learning Outside” exhibit at the Preschool Museum, Berlin (Falkensee), focusing on reinventing the appreciation of learning through sensory experiences, movement, and imagination.

In 2017 he moved to New York City to spread Embodied Learning across the United States.

Tommaso is a keynote speaker and Edutopia writer.
Since the 2016 edition, he performs and mentors at SXSWedu, Austin, TX

He has a Master’s degree in social history from the University of Milan, Italy.
