Program Overview
Trainings for the Not-Yet is a program of research, community learnings, theoretical frameworks, performative workshops, artworks, learning objects, and conversations. In this residency designed for artists, community organizers, researchers, and curators, we will develop a toolkit for a future of being together, otherwise.   

Led by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and guided by her research framework Trainings for The Not-Yet, participants will explore alternative forms of pedagogy and participationin order to think through, model, and embody alternative futures. The program will explore how to shape the places we live in; engage in deep cultural exchanges with and among communities; and influence processes of design, regulation, and policy making. Participants will examine methods for working with organizations and publics in addressing social issues and shared responsibilities, and will imagine the future as a collective exercise of care.

What does the program offer?
Weekly modules will encompass readings, dialogue, experiential exercises, material research and making, participant-driven activities, and collaboration.

Participants will learn to develop new relations and methods of working in social and community-based practices. Shared research and spaces will facilitate deep connections and collaboration. 

Who should apply?
This residency is open to visual artists, community organizers, researchers, architects and designers, and curators who work with communities. Applicants should have completed formal training in visual arts or a field related to this program at the post-secondary level, and should demonstrate a history of exhibitions, publications, and projects.
