What is a radical act? - movements, actions or thoughts that take initiative, courage, and a sense of obligation and ethics in the doing. It is something that takes us out of our comfort zone, going to the root. This requires sensitivity, strategy, skills, and a commitment or obligation to invest in change, well-being, or a sense of a better place...As artists we are held to these ideologies in our creativity and practices. This course will encourage a political, multidisciplinary radical practice laboratory through which writing, the performative, storytelling and generative practices are experienced, discovered and shared. The course will be organized in the experimental, where conceptual themes and ideas support Vision Projects that are process driven. The course would have a faculty lead with a rotating series of visionary and non-traditional visiting artists to support 5 Vision Projects. Guest artists would be selected by the faculty lead with the future hopes of crossing over into Space syllabi.
