Graduate Low Residency Studios are here


Welcome ECU Graduate Students

We would like to welcome our Low Residency and Resident Graduate students to the Emily Carr Wiki. I see this as an opportunity for everyone to mix and exchange ideas and research resources across undergraduate and graduate programs. There is a lot of skill and talent here, say hello and network to support your projects and research: whether to find crew members, mentors, friends with common interests, or to form groups! The possibilities are endless.

Please put your page links here so we can navigate to them. Here is how to do it:
1. click edit (above)
2. place your curser at the top of this page where you would like your name/link to appear.
3. click internal link above (Ab). 4> [[ ]] will appear and you may type your first and last name here and follow it with Graduate Student. ( _____________, Graduate Student). EG. I want to add content under my own page so I will create one. : Finnna Biwie, Graduate Student. you will notice that this type is in red. If I was to click on it, add content and save the page, the name would appear as Blue and then form a link....

GRADUATE STUDENTS interested in Experimental Practices

Welcome Graduate students to the ECU wiki. We are happy to have you here.

This experimental practices forum (and attached courses) acts as a habitat for a critical and artistic development of praxis in relation to experimental practice. It is intended as a place to explore, prepare and hone self-initiated and directed creative explorations. Within the context of experimentation, these explorations can be realized and developed beyond one's current repertoire.
This forum (and courses) will gives participants the opportunity to conduct and present research that supports studio or written work. It is hoped that this forum will support your articulation of the unfamiliar. In this supportive community structure, students can challenge their own methodologies and process; explore outside their current mediums; expand their understanding of their own artistic choices, conceptual proclivities, creative habits, skill sets and professional relationships. This expansion of repertoire is intended to enhance current studio and professional practice. There are 6 and 3 credit courses related to experimental practices but this space marks the first time people interested in the subject have a space to load content that will contribute to the general archive. Please contribute your ideas, bibliographies, musings on writing or related work and your own work.

Experimental Practices Online Community Philosophy
This new wiki is the beginning of an ongoing community of individuals interested in Experimental Practice. You are encouraged to remain part of the community after your course by preserving your page (thereby your research, work and links) and come back to see what new work is being undertaken here. future students will benefit from your contributions to this online library. Faculty and graduate students are encouraged to start new pages if so inclined. You are welcome to continue to contribute feedback if you are motivated by research or work you find here.
Hopefully with ongoing contributions across terms and years, this wiki will become a valuable research tool for current and past students alike. In successive terms/years, individuals visiting particular course pages will be able to also projects of the individuals in that cohort by visiting the class student links bottom of the page. Happy digging.
