Distance Education takes place within the context of a larger series of performances and events curated by Shalon Webber-Heffernan entitled Performing Pedagogies. Distance Education is a collaborative exhibition and symposium taking place in the Art and Media Lab at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.
This project establishes a cross-Canada collaboration with Queen’s Department of Film and Media’s undergraduate class, Contemporary Issues in Cultural Studies and the Vancouver-based artist-run free school, The School for Eventual Vacancy (TSEV) - led by Caitlin Chaisson and Justin Langlois of TSEV. Through long distance exchange, the exhibition examines and seeks to challenge where and how (un)learning can take place and what counts as knowledge. As part Distance Education, students will create ‘distance education packages’ which will eventually be sent back to Vancouver as part of an unlearning symposium at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.
