We’re back in Toronto, and it feels great!
Currently we’re working with Dr. Stephanie Springgay at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto on Stephanie’s SSHRCC-funded research project entitled The Pedagogical Impulse.
“The Pedagogical Impulse is a platform for research-creation concerned with contemporary art’s paradigmatic re-orientation towards the educational. The project will orient itself around a series of artist residencies that will take place across a number of educational sites (K-12 classrooms, teacher education programs, graduate programs, and community spaces) in order to examine how artists are engaging with educational concepts as spaces for the development of new critical practices, and the potential transformative engagements that occur when such art practices are located in schools…”
We have been meeting with some really exciting schools (& teachers), and are looking forward to the coming months of our residency.
Also, our dear friend Hazel Meyer is working with us on this project. Check out her inspirational aesthetics (& athletics) here.
