As the ‘traditional’ jobs in the arts are under increased pressure, and our society is faced by seemingly insurmountable problems, like climate change and pollution, but also social disintegration and loneliness, many artists feel the need to reposition themselves and look for ways to contribute. The covid-19 pandemic has made these problems even more acute. The Research Festival will address these issues, with (inter)national speakers from the world of dance, music and theater, next to a variety of research presentations from Codarts students and staff.
In her keynote lecture, Emergent perspectives: Listening with, Learning with, in Dialogue with, research professor Social Practices Michelle Teran introduces the learning model Study Kitchen.
Developed together with teachers in the Performative Action course, WdKA Social Practices, the Study Kitchen proposes an emergent strategy, for how to listen, learn and be in dialogue with. How does one learn in movement, through situated encounters, and building knowledge in common? These are questions that offer a foundational nature of the ‘loving questions’, questions that are not solution-oriented but keep within the flow of life.
