From January 25th to April 25th of 2014 I engaged in an experience-based research phase of a curatorial residency at Fogo Island Arts in remote Newfoundland, Canada. In collaboration with teachers, parents, local architects, and builders I am designing a new model of pedagogical engagement specific to Fogo Island, one that could be adapted to address other rapidly changing communities in Canada, North America or beyond. Fogo Island and the nearby Change Islands continually redefine the notion of an experimental community. Given a recent experiment to revitalize the economy and the connection to architecture, I am developing a platform for youth on the island to contribute to the dialogue concerning these changes.
