Learning, Education & Pedagogy

In a moment of social and environmental urgency (or crisis), ArtsEverywhere critically reflects on systems of knowledge (re) production, to radically re-imagine our ways of learning and being.

Learning, Education and Pedagogy presents a wide range of perspectives and explores a diversity of ways of knowing, attempting to decolonize the structure of education, contesting universal dominant frames, and focusing on pedagogy as politics. Artistic perspectives, convivial/militant research, theoretical discourses, as well as praxis of both affects and cognition, embodied and land-based practices – these are some of the tools and processes through which we witness how learning communities are unfolding in different contexts, reclaiming autonomous yet interconnected zones of knowledge.

BLACK POLITICS: THE BODY IN PROTEST
A PROGRAM OF SELFCARE FOR NAKED ACTION

Michelle Mattiuzzi, Salvador, Brazil 

Nudity is a decolonizing projectile bullet for radicalized bodies that are marked by difference. It is violent; it is performance; it is activism; it is contradictory; it is indestructible.
