From the framework of nomadic thinking and learning, KASK & Conservatoire is building practical, methodological and infrastructural teaching expertise that will be deployed both on-campus and off-campus. From now until September 2023, we will explore all possibilities of innovative teaching methods within the project of the Nomadic School of Arts.
For us, nomadism means, on the one hand, the philosophical idea described by Deleuze (1972) and Braidotti (2004): the pursuit of deconstructing conventional norms and values and building an identity that is constantly shifting and changing. On the other hand, we consider nomadism as a concrete pedagogical tool for off-campus activities: hands-on and off-grid nomadic experiments take place throughout the academic year.
Here, inclusion, nomadic education and modular learning go hand in hand and reinforce each other both off- and on-campus.
Everyone (all students and staff) is welcome to contribute to this by submitting projects, thinking along or lending a helping hand!
The Nomadic School of Arts project can take place thanks to additional resources from Europe (NextGenerationEU) that have been poured into the Voorsprongfonds within Flanders: an opportunity (literally and figuratively) to get a head start on one’s own educational development.
The project thus takes a two-sided approach. It encourages teachers and students to experiment nomadically with new contents and methods in art education (off)-campus. It does this by organising OPEN CALLS and developing the interdisciplinary project week It’s About Time! in March 2023.
In PORTFOLIO you will find all the projects initiated by the Nomadic School of Arts.
At the same time, the Nomadic School of Arts is exploring the institutional capacity to make higher arts education more diverse and inclusive through scans, intervision processes and professionalisation activities (rather top-down). Within this, the NSA is also exploring the possibilities of a transition to modular education, using current experiments as input.
Off-campus activities can take place in an infinite number of locations, here are already a few. Be sure to check out our list with (potential) nomadic activities as well:
