Rehearsal: Emerging Learning Sites

The MA Education in Arts cordially invites you for the two-day public symposium, entitled Rehearsal: Emerging Learning Sites hosted by TENT Rotterdam. This symposium is part of the Piet Zwart Institute’s 2022 Graduation Shows that are taking place at various venues across Rotterdam.

Through participatory workshops, open space discussions and performative exercises, Rehearsal: Emerging Learning Sites introduces the various contexts and methodologies with which the MEiA students are working. Rather than reporting on their findings, the students will engage in conversation with people who are passionate and/or curious about contemporary institutional and alternative, experimental education. This invitation to participate in emerged learning starts with pedagogical gestures developed by the MEiA cohort through experimental practices both in and outside of institutional educational settings, working with groups of students and marginalized communities of children and adults.To name a few: relating through crafting and listening in peer-led women groups; activating sensory memories in discovering nature in everyday life; allowing spaces of care and equality in learning communities within institutional settings; combining embodied and linguistic strategies for emancipatory experiences in relation to multilingual children; performing and suspending teacher-student power dynamics in theatre education by proposing ‘rehearsing change’ as pedagogy. The detailed symposium programme can be found here. The program is fully public, but due to their participatory nature, the workshops in the morning require registration. We look forward to welcome you!

With: Urte Baranauskaite, Judith van den Berg, Elina Charinti, Kasia Dembinski, Lorenzo Gerbi, Jeroen van der Heijden, Bruna Esperi, Iris Megens, Xica Negra and Huy Bang Phan.

We cordially invite you to a day of workshops, conversations/presentations, walks and field listening at the urban garden complex Volkstuinvereniging Streven naar Verbetering (SNV) in Rotterdam!

A typical urban garden such as SNV does not look like an experimental learning site at first, or as a place of (un)commoning practices that continuously negotiate between varying meanings, expertise and politics. It tends to be seen as an assemblage of tiny eclectic allotments and people of different ages and backgrounds who maintain the land and relations in the complex. Looking at it from a larger perspective, gardening is simultaneously a metaphor and a model for examining and (un)learning practices of environmental interventions. Learning with the Garden; Learning from the Land proposes to relate to this urban site of biologically and socially interdependent living beings through small-scale engagements and personal stories. Spending this day in the garden, we will explore how its soil, water, air, creatures and people trigger different scenarios of learning and co-responding. The slow process of relating to the interwovenness of the Earth’s human and non-human beings opens up the possibility of challenging institutional (or disciplinary) mechanisms that depend on a predefined method of observation and understanding. This land-based classroom invites us to experience learning through becoming together with the land and other people and sharing accountabilities, rather than through reporting and explaining those. We invite gardeners, students, artists, designers and educators to join us in imagining a non-disciplinary practiceof meaning-making which relies on embodied and intuitive experiences as tools.

With: Skye Maule-O’Brien (educator, researcher, WdKA); Victoria McKenzie (eco-warrior, academic-activist, choreographer), Tara Page (Head of PhD Art Practice and Learning, Goldsmiths, London),

Ida Hiršenfelder (sound artist and archivist), Irina Shapiro (designer, educator, events curator) and Renée Turner (artist and senior research lecturer WdKA).

This event is part of a larger event series called Co-respond: Bodies, Voices, Spaces in Art Education initiated by the MA Education in Arts / Piet Zwart Institute: Ingrid Commandeur (Course Director), Irina Shapiro and Renée Turner in collaboration with Jules Sturm (ZdHK, Zurich).

Practical information:

Location: Volkstuinvereniging Streven naar Verbetering, Roel Langerakweg 33, Rotterdam

Date: Friday June 3, 2022

Time: 10:30 – 18:00, drinks until 19:30

How to enrol: Attendance is free, but due to the event’s participatory nature, the number of places is limited to 40 people. Please enrol in time by sending an e-mail (with your name and contact details) to correspondingarteducation@gmail.com if you wish to attend.

Call for ParticipationWe are pleased to invite you to take part in the reading group Co-respond: Bodies, Voices, Spaces in Art Education (March – June 2022), which is set up as part of an ongoing collaboration between the MA Education in Arts / PZI and the MA Art Education at Zurich University of the Arts.

The reading group, hosted by Irina Shapiro (PZI) and Jules Sturm (ZdHK), will comprise a regular series of hybrid physical and screen-based encounters in which participants discuss themes like embodied learning, material sense-making, hybrid corporeal-digital practices, educative gardening and transformative pedagogies. Within these gatherings, correspondence is both a theme and an approach. It is a concept embraced for its summoning of the relational, in the sense of how one thing connects or corresponds to another, or how one group of people connects to another. It is also used quite simply as a form, where conversations slowly unfold through the act of letter writing or other communicative exchanges. Reading in this context is understood as an act of engaging with texts and sites through observations and listening practices, bodily driven cartographies, and more.

The reading group serves as a testing place for emerging art educators’ pedagogical ideas and gestures affiliated with the proposed theme, and intends to share and rehearse practices in co-engaged art education. The reading group is the starting point of a larger series of events organized by the MA Education in Arts at Piet Zwart Institute under the same title.

For Whom? Students (Master level), alumni*ae, teachers and others who are professionally interested and/or affiliated with the community and network of this collaborative initiative.

How to participate? The sessions are scheduled on Thursday evenings from 18:00 until 20:00 on the following dates: March 17, March 31, April 28, May 19, June 23. Participation is free of charge. There are two possible ways of participating: 1) as a contributor 2) as an attendee. Contributors can propose and organize guest presenters, put forward their own ideas, and/or develop a specific format for one of the sessions. A budget will be available for invited guests and production costs.

Please send a short motivational letter to Sun Chang, correspondingarteducation@gmail.com, in which you briefly introduce yourself and tell us about your reasons for participating in the reading group. Deadline for submission is March 11.

Based on their own design questions, students within the Master Design learn to do designerly and in-depth design research. They constantly reflect on what they discover and convey their work and expertise through storytelling. They combine and integrate this part-time master with their design practice, renew their own role and in this way that of creative professionals in society and organizations. They contribute to social, environmental and technological change. The combination of participatory work and authorship is fundamental.

Research in Art & Design Education and Community Practices

What is the significance of material practices and embodiment for artistic research and education in the current era of social distancing and digital conferencing? How can we develop an art-driven, interdisciplinary pedagogy within secondary education? What are the main challenges when it comes to forging transdisciplinary connections between the arts and sciences in education? How do we look at art mediation from the perspective of sustainability and diversity? How do pivotal topics in our current circumstances – like the climate crisis, intersectionality and decolonialization – influence our view on education in the future? Would you like to do in-depth research on a question of your own choosing within a collective learning community? If so, the Master of Education in Arts at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, might be something for you.

The Master of Education in Arts admission committee reviews applications, interviews, and accepts candidates on a rolling basis from February 2022 to April 2022, until all positions in the cohorts are filled.

The class of 2021 of the Master of Education in Arts spent a significant part of their study during the COVID-crisis. This made them increasingly aware of physical presence as a meaningful aspect of education, as well as of an urgency to devote themselves to a collective decision-making process in preparing their research and presentation. In their search to stay connected to each other as a group, they experienced the complexities of participating in a collective practice for an unknown period of time, while at the same time going through their individual research trajectories.

This process influenced their sense of collectivity and spurred them to stay in constant “preparation for being together”. While the radical proposal of a collective graduation project didn’t fall through, alternatively, they started searching and probing to share a digital space and complied a website/publication together entitled: preparations for being together in an unknown period of time. We hope you will enjoy wandering through this binder and time capsule of a specific historical moment.

Class of 2021: Maud Berden; Annemarie van den Berg; Marjolijn Gunst; Anita Hrnić; Lisanne Janssen; Márton Kabai; Gundega Melberga; Diogo Rinaldi (Mark Liberman, Sanne Cobussen: present in their absence)

Workshop UMAD decolonizing rituals: Friday June 11, 16.00 – 18.00 hrsWith: Fazl Shairmahomed and Rolando VázquezLocation: Zoom: on line workshop and film screeningAdmission: Free, because of the max. amount of 30 participants please register via demsm@hr.nl (deadline: June 8).

Zoom link for the workshop: https://hogeschoolrotterdam.zoom.us/j/98242836999?pwd=SmxFb1pIczRNTWI0VkdNM1B1WEhMQT09

Hereby the Master of Education in Arts cordially invites you to take part in the workshop and film screening UMAD decolonizing rituals. In this workshop, featuring the performance artist Fazle Shairmahomed and teacher and researcher Rolando Vázquez, you will be invited to engage in a conversation around the question: where do political and spiritual processes of decolonization intertwine? This question will be explored through a writing ritual, viewing the short film UMAD and spoken word. The workshop requires light reading and preparation of a simple ritual before participation.

In the film UMAD (Hindi: emotional overflow) you witness the spiritual journey of decolonization for four artists with roots in Surinam, India and the Netherlands. They negotiate with the history of forced labour migration, the erasure of cultures they belong to, cultures they have come to belong to, and the oppressive systems which continue to exist today. All of them have been touched by the Dutch and British colonial projects, but are shaped differently through their personal experiences in life through religion, gender, and sexuality, which becomes visible through their authentic visions on decolonization and healing

Fazle Shairmahomed is a performance artist, dancer, intersectional activist, and community builder. He creates decolonizing rituals, through which he transforms the relationship with the spectator, and challenges understandings of inter-sensoriality. His experienced reality creates an urgency that shapes his artistic choices leading to themes such as death, rebirth, ancestry, belonging, colonial histories, and healing. As a community builder he is one of the members of CLOUD danslab, an artist-run dance studio which supports research and practice of dance, movement, and performance art in the Hague; Masala Movement, an international intercultural platform for creativity; and he is involved in several Queer communities. He graduated in anthropology and Middle Eastern Studies/Arabic. www.fazleshairmahomed.com

Rolando Vázquez is a teacher and decolonial thinker. He is regularly invited to deliver keynotes on decoloniality at academic and cultural institutions. Vázquez is currently Associate Professor of Sociology at University College Roosevelt and Cluster Chair at the University College Utrecht. Since 2010, he co-directs with Walter Mignolo the annual Maria Lugones Decolonial Summer School, now hosted by the Van Abbemuseum. In 2016, under the direction of Gloria Wekker, he co-authored the report “Let’s do Diversity” of the University of Amsterdam Diversity Commission. Vázquez’s work places the question of the possibility of an ethical life at the core of decolonial thought and advocates for the decolonial transformation of cultural and educational institutions. His most recent publication is Vistas of Modernity: Decolonial aesthesis and the End of the Contemporary (Mondriaan Fund 2020)
