Our traveling program is arranged, planned and carried out in collaboration with a local - and likeminded - hosting institution*. This program can be brought to any urban or rural community in the world, and its focus is to explore the following four ideas with the local community:
1. study of pre-modern art processes, which informs community members' ability to identify potential in the resources available for the production of art materials and tools.
2. the exploration of the natural and built environment, which informs our ability to use that environment as a tool for teaching and learning
3. interbeing (Anderson et all, 2012), which is the act of bonding with others and our environment.
4. connect art education and environmental education.
(*) a hosting institution is an entity or individual with whom we coordinate logistic, technical and artistic/educational details in relation to work conditions and the space in which our program will be carried out. These institutions are usually – but not limited to – art residencies, art centers, schools, orphanages, rural communities, etc. Communication with the contact person at each hosting institution is key to the success of these programs. The contact person is responsible for the recruitment of participants, scheduling workshop sessions, securing a suitable workspace and keeping a reliable channel of communication with CAES prior to our arrival and during our stay.
