i have loved being immersed in learning as a process—it encourages me, develops conversations and capacities with others, grows insight and depth, and enriches communities. it is an art of making, inquiry, and discovery. i have sought to integrate professional and personal skills that could support holistic, inclusive, interactive, imaginative, and thoughtful forms of engagement and realization. i have railed against the deformities that ranked and tenured systems inculcate and reproduce, seeking continuities among participants from diverse places and experiences, and have been particularly committed to experiential learning, arts-based and arts-informed education, varieties of formative assessment, ungraded environments, and slow education movements. i continue my involvement in learning and my understanding of learning practices by offering community-based courses with the canadian institute for the study of antisemitism (www.canisa.org), through my involvement within the “walls to bridges program” in courses offered at the headingley women’s correctional centre, and in mentoring and creative partnerships with other artists, writers, and advocates.
