Decolonising Pedagogy: Exploring processes in image-making


Valand Academy would like to welcome you to a three-day workshop-conference for discussions about decolonising pedagogy and the aesthetics and ethical dimensions of image-making in film and photography.

The discussion around how to develop curriculums that are inclusive and reflexive of their historical and epistemic positions has grown in urgency. This is connected to the discourses around the call for decolonising institutions, teaching-learning frameworks and for a revitalising pedagogy, which draws from and includes multiple experiences and subjectivities present in the classroom.

How do we approach the necessity for revising received certainties of western knowledge paradigms and reference points to include histories, experiences and image-making practices that draw from multiple positions and perspectives? More urgently, how do we include perspectives that encourage experimentation with image-making?

This workshop-conference will include both presentations and hands-on workshops that require participants to engage directly with content and material. It is structured to create an environment for collective sharing and draws from the practice and pedagogy challenges and experiences of its convenors as a starting point.

Deadline for registration which is 19 April 2019. The conference is limited to 30 participants. The workshops and presentations will be held English.

There is no conference registration fee but participants will be expected to cover their own travel and accommodation for the duration of the workshop-conference.
