2021: Decolonial Art Pedagogies

In Spring 2021, P3 will present Decolonial Art Pedagogies, a series of events that propose decolonial, alternative, and radical pedagogical models for education, starting with a focus on Indigenous pedagogies at the intersection with art education, social practice, and performance art. P3 will feature an array of programming focused on Indigenous epistemologies, pedagogies, research, community practice, and performance art via a series of lectures, an artist’s residence, conversations, workshops, performances, and student engagements. 

Decolonial Art Pedagogies was conceived to demonstrate how the recognition and implementation of Indigenous epistemologies and pedagogies may lead to promoting a culture of radical social and political inclusion for Indigenous peoples (and for society at large), a process of developing awareness around Indigenous sovereignty; and demonstrating how performance art and social practice, approached from a pedagogical perspective, may activate social engagement, address social injustice and inequity, and lead to processes of social change on the Pratt campus and beyond.

Decolonial Art Pedagogies is a collaboration between Art and Design Education, Center for Teaching and Learning, Fine Arts, Franklin Furnace Archive, Performance and Performance Studies, and Social Science and Cultural Studies’ The Global South Center.

The list of programs will be announced in Fall 2020.

Originally scheduled to take place in Fall 2020, this program was postponed to Spring 2021 due to COVID-19.
