Creative Ecologies of Practice: Collaborative Agential Modes of Eco-Aesthetic Pedagogy
This presentation will discuss two collaborative environmental art projects aimed at creating experimental and experiential trans-disciplinary pedagogical practices. Both projects are examples of “creative ecologies of practice” enabling and requiring multiple modes of thought, multiple modes of encounter, and multiple modes of pedagogy. They are imaginative and speculative, require resonance and creative response, and include practices and discourses of eco-aesthetics to foster sites of refuge, sites of agency and cities response-ablitiy. They enable collaborative inquires into urgent social, political and ecological challenges, exploring elements that help to activate, integrate and support collaborative endeavors that challenge current (neoliberal capitalistic) representations, foster (multi species) agency and create new knowledge(s).
