THE BIG PEDAGOGY FESTIVAL
THE BIG PEDAGOGY FESTIVAL was a four day (and one evening) Zoom gathering celebrating the one year anniversary of freeskewl. The FESTIVAL was generated from the initiations of freeskewl’s POP-UP Practice and Pedagogy/Poetic Entry series. Each of these freeskewl programs invite teaching artists and participants to consider practice, environment, current moments, and care through practical application and collective dialogue. These considerations spilled through the day and from one day into the next.
The four days offered space for a cross-pollination of ideas through movement preparations, techniques, and collaborative inventions in the moment, open discussions, and a continual space for documentation (a running Google Doc).
THE TEACHING ARTISTS:
Hyp-ACCESS (Audre Wirtanen & Laura Tuthall), Angie Pittman, Jasmine Hearn, Angie Hauser, K.J. Holmes, Jesi Cook, Gerald Casel, Paul Singh, Netta Yerushalmy, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Anya Cloud, Kristianne Salcines, Amelia Uzategui Bonilla, Kimberly Bartosik, Julie Mayo, Christy Funsch
