List of presentations given at national and international conferences.
In September 2015, I participated in a week-long intensive residency on digital media concepts for art education at Museum Schloss Moyland in Bedburg-Hau, Germany. I was one of 30 participants chosen from 300 applicants. Participants from Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Poland, Scotland, Serbia, Bosnia, Georgia, Lithuania, and Turkey.
An interactive social practice art and exhibition project I created with fellow artists Lois Klassen, Elisa Yon, and Adam Stenhouse. The project existed as a 10-day school-within-a-school at Emily Carr University of Art & Design in December, 2011 and online at http://qruopenschool.ca/. Participants were presented with a series of questions about their relationships with art, learning and technology.
In this article co-written with Jody Baker, we argue for the integration of open source culture and current remix practices into art and media curriculum. We reflect upon previous online teaching experiences as we develop a pedagogical approach for a course examining remix culture.
This article in the International Journal of Education through Art discusses an artist-teacher residency staged at a university that examined relations between art, learning and teaching. It begins with a short discussion of the pedagogical turn in contemporary art and interventionist art practices before describing the artist-teacher residency. This residency was initiated to examine how teacher candidates come to understand pedagogy in their field.
I co-wrote a book chapter called "Intercultual Exchange: Interventions and Intraventions of Practice Based Research" published in Routledge Handbook of Intercultural Arts Research by Routledge in the UK.
I co-wrote a book chapter called "Encountering Research as Creative Practice: Participants Giving Voice to the Researcher" published in Arts-Research-Education: Connections and Directions by Springer in London.
From 2005 to 2012, I was an active member of the(Laura Jamieson Housing Co-operative located in East Vancouver, BC. The main roles I performed were: Board member for 2 years, Coordinator of flooring renovations for 3 years, and Newsletter editorial team for 5 years. I also was one of the main organizers of a neighbourhood block party which involved closing off the street to live music, food and children's games.
