Culture Connect: Diversity Resource Toolkit

Globally, refugees are displaced at high rates and must integrate into a society where they are an ethnic minority. Since 2016, the International Rescue Committee has resettled over 300 refugees in Missoula; about 20% of which are school-aged children. Therefore, it is important that schools facilitate refugee inclusivity and intercultural competence within student peer groups. To aid in solving this global problem, we developed a project using the three steps of Human-Centered Design that aimed to enhance teacher competence, knowledge and increase the access to resources needed to address this global problem in the classroom ...

Art: The Language We Use When There Is Nothing We Can Say, Peter London 2020 University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

Art: The Language We Use When There Is Nothing We Can Say, Peter London

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

When matters of ultimate concern are upon us, the language with which we ordinarily negotiate life reveals its limitations. At these pivotal moments of life, we spontaneously yield to tears or laughter or song or silence. At these high moments reason no longer feels sufficient, is too slow, too pedantic. In these moments we shift inexorably from walking to dancing, from speaking to singing. We rely upon song to console us, we believe in song to hold us steady, to carry us past or closer. We rely on art, these seemingly flimsy things to save us.


Co-Creation With Youth: Teaching Artistry And Art Outrearch Programs, Hallie Morrison 2020 Independent Artist-Scholar

Co-Creation With Youth: Teaching Artistry And Art Outrearch Programs, Hallie Morrison

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

This article shares my process and reflection as a teaching artist on a specific project with the Chicago Opera Theater (COT). An extension of my personal and professional practices that aims to provide larger painting experiences for students than they are normally provided, this project takes place in Chicago public schools through a model of Arts Partnership in which COT brings in multidisciplinary arts education. Beyond being an educational program, this school-based artistic co-creation resulted in opportunities for professional learn- ing, intracultural bonding, and empowering moments for youth. This article includes images of the art teaching process, arts integration program ...


Editing My Own Drum, Adrienne Adams 2020 Independent Artist

Editing My Own Drum, Adrienne Adams

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

The author examines her art and poetry practice exploring how the "Badlands" of Alberta, Canada in particular Áísínai'pi (Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park), are "the bones of the earth". She looks at the visual and linguistic poetry within them and examines her wording to decolonize her practice and learning/unlearning from the land and the cultures; Blackfoot and Settler, and peoples that inhabit it. She highlights how her process of editing a specific poem “My Own Drum” prompted and echoes an examination of her practice that leads to the writing of a new poem written during this process, revealing some of ...


Conversations With Each Other: Love Songs To The Earth, Adrian M. Downey, Gonen Sagy 2020 Mount Saint Vincent University

Conversations With Each Other: Love Songs To The Earth, Adrian M. Downey, Gonen Sagy

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

Conversation is a complicated, ever-changing, and dynamic space—a space which is foundational to both education and curriculum, broadly conceived. In this article, we continue our ongoing conversion through the notion of writing love songs to the Earth and to each other. Within the conversation, Gonen shares original poetry emergent from his lived experiences, while Adrian attends to Gonen’s poetry in prosaic response. In this, the socio-political moment of the Canadian movement toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, we view our relationship and our conversations as speaking back to the competitive languages of diasporic space and Indigenous place ...


Who’S Curating?: Situating Autohistorias-Teorías In The Archives, Leslie C. Sotomayor, Julie M. Porterfield 2020 Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

Who’S Curating?: Situating Autohistorias-Teorías In The Archives, Leslie C. Sotomayor, Julie M. Porterfield

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

During the 2018-2019 academic year, we collaborated to facilitate a workshop for students in an Art Education course, using archival material from the Eberly Family Special Collections Library at Penn State. The course cen- tered on diversity, pedagogy, and visual culture. Using our respective expertise in Art Education and primary source literacy, we chose the design and scope of the two-day workshop and subsequent assignment as a reflection for our passion for feminist theorizing and reimagining the academic White patriarchal canon in a predominantly White institution. As critical, feminist pedagogues, and in an effort to match the course theme, we ...


The Verge: Networks Of Intersubjective Responding For Just Sustainability Arts Educational Research, Marna Hauk, Amanda Rachel Kippen 2020 Institute for Earth Regenerative Studies, Portland, Oregon & Prescott College, Prescott, Arizona

The Verge: Networks Of Intersubjective Responding For Just Sustainability Arts Educational Research, Marna Hauk, Amanda Rachel Kippen

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

Two sustainability arts scholars describe a method of data interpretation they developed for making sense of complex environmental and sustainability education research data. They “played” images and recorded a conversation in a form of arts-based intersubjective knowing. The card game process was named the Verge because of how the process promises to surface unheard voices and re-center nondominant insights and ways of knowing. It leverages Casey’s glance method with systems networks to complicate sense making in arts-based educational research. The arts scholars intermixed research data from two just sustainability education research case studies: collages from participants of a climate ...


An Unlikely Correspondence: Gps And Body In Place, Patti Pente 2020 University of Alberta

An Unlikely Correspondence: Gps And Body In Place, Patti Pente

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

This visual essay investigates the significance of GPS technology and the human body in relation to a sense of place. Framed by posthumanism, the poetic images offer an approach to transformative education through a lo- cal site. Agency of place is key to this exploration of dynamic relationships with technology, body and the earth. As a creative performance, I executed a series of movements in a place of personal significance, and then further developed the essay through visual poetry. The research is informed by an underlying assumption that creative understanding and artistic analysis can foster deeper environmental care, and although ...


Lessons From Birds, Bones, And The Body, Alexandra Fidyk, Darlene St.Georges 2020 University of Alberta

Lessons From Birds, Bones, And The Body, Alexandra Fidyk, Darlene St.Georges

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

Written as a layered pictorial script, three images—Owl, Raven, and Hummingbird—beckoned the authors. Together, they explored neglected epistemologies in many disciplines within education, the arts and humanities to deepen their understanding of what it means to live in caring relation with an animated world. By tracking the Birds’ lineages and kinships through active imagination, amplification, and circumambulation, concealed patterns and associations reveal lessons for living more consciously with repressed and expressed feminine/androgyne energies. To be more conscious of both aids in the unfolding processes central to becoming, undoing, creativity, and pedagogy. Herein an ethical challenge arises: how ...


Eco-Pedagogical Wandering And Pondering In Pacific Spirit Park, Nicole Rallis 2020 University of British Columbia

Eco-Pedagogical Wandering And Pondering In Pacific Spirit Park, Nicole Rallis

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

This poetry emerges from my ongoing Ph.D. research and coursework at the University of British Columbia, where I am engaging in an a/r/tographic-walking inquiry on environmental sustainability and climate change. After moving to the unceded and ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, now known as Vancouver, I began walking the forest trails of Pacific Spirit Park. Inspired by Robin Wall Kimmerer’s (2013) pedagogical discussions about the grammar of animacy, two-eyed ways of seeing, and childlike ways of seeing, my poems pay tribute to the plant elders and more-than-human beings guiding my learning journey. My ecopedagogical ...


A Contemplative And Artful Métissage Of Inquiry And Response, Jackie Mitchell, Nicholas Phillips, Robyn Trail, Susan C. Walsh, Barbara Bickel, Wendalyn Bartley, Medwyn McConachy 2020 Mount Saint Vincent University

A Contemplative And Artful Métissage Of Inquiry And Response, Jackie Mitchell, Nicholas Phillips, Robyn Trail, Susan C. Walsh, Barbara Bickel, Wendalyn Bartley, Medwyn Mcconachy

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

In this mixed media métissage, we offer an exploration of artful and contemplative inquiry and response. We are a group of seven artist-researchers who engage with contemplative practices associated with various spiritual traditions, including spiritual feminist, Wiccan, Mi’kmaw, and Tibetan Buddhist, integral to all of which are beliefs about human interconnectedness with the energies of all sentient beings, the Earth, and beings in the spirit worlds. As artist-researchers, we engage with a range of arts disciplines including poetry, creative non-fiction, storytelling, sounding, visual art, filmmaking, and photography. Together, we invite the reader/listener/viewer--as co-creator—into the potentialities of ...


Walking And Dwelling: Creating An Atelier In Nature, Kwang Dae (Mitsy) Chung 2020 University of British Columbia

Walking And Dwelling: Creating An Atelier In Nature, Kwang Dae (Mitsy) Chung

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

This paper comprises a description of an exploration of how the author’s daily walking reflected the emergence of an a/r/tographical living inquiry that engendered a profound sense of dwelling and lingering, and a deeper understanding of the nature of artistic invitation through a pedagogical aesthetic provocation.


Paying It Forward: A Gift Economy Of Poetry And Visual Art Images, Susan Gerofsky, Daniel Barney, MIra Gerard 2020 University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada

Paying It Forward: A Gift Economy Of Poetry And Visual Art Images, Susan Gerofsky, Daniel Barney, Mira Gerard

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

As our world has changed rapidly and ineluctably with the COVID-19 pandemic, many are advocating an ethos of generosity and a gift economy, based on generative, creative offerings, as an alternative or balance to the excesses of a mainstream neoliberal exchange economy. What is the gift economy, and how does it entangle us in a fabric of mutual responsibility, obligation, creative practices and love, within the human and greater-than-human world? A Pay-It-Forward New Year's gift game amongst a group of artist/ educators, ongoing since 2014, gives rise to this meditation on the gift economy, based on Mauss, Hyde, Kimmerer ...

Begin With Letting Go: A Found Poem In Honour Of Carl Leggo, Contemplative Arts Collective

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

As a group of nineteen, we are pleased to offer a found poem that we co-created with lines from our contributions to a two-part special issue of Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal (2018, 2019).

Further, we performed the found poem at an event in honour of Carl’s life and work (Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies Preconference Event—The Many Faces of Love: Celebrating the ...

Introduction: Curating As Compassion, Barbara Bickel, Darlene St.Georges

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

This issue’s open call brought forth a diversity of submissions that reflect the culture of uncertainty and possibilities for the arts and inquiry, teaching and learning in the Twenty-first Century. We offer this issue as a gift during a time of pandemic, ecological crisis, and racial and gender divides, with a desire to contribute to unmaking and making meaning through the arts; “it is how we develop our agency and exercise our voice.

Ascendance And Transformation: Humanizing Trio First Generation Students Of Color And Their Stem Empowerment Agents, Vanessa Nicole Torres 2020 University of California, Irvine

Ascendance And Transformation: Humanizing Trio First Generation Students Of Color And Their Stem Empowerment Agents, Vanessa Nicole Torres

The Macksey Journal

The TRIO program has the ability to mentor Black and Latinx students of color into pathways that can minimize the gap in educational attainment. Stanton-Salazar (2011) explains how mentorship in the form of empowerment agents among working-class students of color furthers their access to institutional support that is empowering for them in combination with their critical consciousness as they navigate STEM as a field and career choice (as cited in V. Pendakur, 2016). In other words, a mentor becomes a tool for action for this student population to transform themselves and their community. The TRIO STEM educators involved in California ...


The Inventive Work Of The Christian Mind, Jeff Ringer 2020 University of Tennessee

The Inventive Work Of The Christian Mind, Jeff Ringer

The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

Responding to Bizzell’s 2008 JAEPL article, this article argues that the intellectual work of religious minds involves inventing arguments grounded in the religious community’s ethos that advocate for new perspectives within that community. Using Katharine Hayhoe’s evangelical Christian environmentalist rhetoric as an example, this article prompts rhetorical educators to rethink approaches to teaching ethos.

("What if there is intellectual work to be done that can only be done by what [Shannon] Carter calls the “Christian mind”—or Jewish, Muslim, or Buddhist mind?" —Patricia Bizzell, Faith-Based World Views as a Challenge to the Believing Game)
