This educational opportunity is specifically targeted at recent graduates at MFA level who are interested in exploring their own potential to develop as educators and to gain experience in educational project work and applied critical pedagogy. This is also a pathway for those interested in developing research proposals giving them an opportunity to work in a dynamic and transformative academic context and understand what a research process entails.  

The basic purpose of this learning opportunity is to enable and enhance the participants knowledge and understanding of critical artistic pedagogy and the change potentials within higher arts education as a form or responsible critical practice - combining organisational competency with critical reflexive insight. We wish to learn together how we can join critical position to practical agency in a community of critical dialogue and challenge.
