Art+Reconciliation (original introduction)

2017 summer intensive

From original introduction: “Art+Reconciliation,” is a MOOC that addresses how artistic practices can engage in questions of reconciliation, most particularly in the Canadian context of residential schools and the associated and ongoing Truth and Reconciliation Commission. As part of our process we explored the history of the residential school system in Canada, discussed strategies of creating and increasing an awareness of Indigenous practices and histories from Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal perspectives, engaged in a critical inquiry of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools, and all the while thought through how artistic media can be a driving force in this articulation. Our ‘course’ began July 15, 2013 and the first segment, incorporating the ‘Reconsidering Reconciliation’ arts residency in Kamloops, ran til Aug 31. The second phase ran through to Sept 30, 2013, with a rolling registration and sign up for this RMOOC  so participants could receive our updates. There were various manners by which viewers could partake, explained in the how to participate in this site via social media and tools we built that allowed various forms of contribution to the experience. rmooc is officially closed as an ongoing and maintained site, but will be reinvented as an archive and database that will likely take on new life as we all proceed with this work.
