Stephanie will give a public lecture entitled The primacy of movement in artist-residency projects in schools or How to make a classroom operate like a work of art?
5pm – Tue 11th Oct
Harry Clarke Lecture Theatre, NCAD
Here is the abstract for the talk:
This presentation will contribute to the growing field of scholarship on movement in artist-residency projects. Particularly the paper considers how movement fundamentally disturbs boundaries, complicates and disrupts established relations, multiplies and creates immanent connections, produces the virtual, and extends the potential of the body in space. The presentation/paper expands on arguments about movement-sensation through social choreography in order to explore the relationship between movement and community. I consider how recent discussions of zootechnologies or swarms, while resisting methods of analytical investigation, can offer new ways of thinking about collectivity and political subjectivity that is ontogenetic, indeterminate, and of an ‘ecology’ in co-composition. Movement is germane to emerging posthumanist explorations within educational research, and a crucial component for re-imagining research-creation methodologies. Through affective thinking about movement and political-tendings, this paper highlights the productive connections and mattering available in artist-residency projects in schools.
Dr. Springgay will be a Visiting Professor at University College, Dublin in October, 2016. Watch this space for lecture announcements.
Gender and Cultural Studies Seminar Series at University of Sydney
This presentation focuses on a 3-year multi-site research-creation project that took place in more than 12 schools in Toronto, Canada and documented at: www.thepedagogicalimpulse.com. The presentation will contribute to the growing field of scholarship on movement, particularly taking into consideration how movement fundamentally disturbs boundaries, complicates and disrupts established relations, multiplies and creates immanent connections, and produces the virtual.
Two days of propositions, “conceptual speed dating,” discussions, and movement that will engage with Affect, Difference and Fugitive Mobilization.

Stephanie Springgay will be delivering a lecture at Western Sydney University Australia, Sydney Australia.
The lecture will focus on a series of research-creation projects and more than human research methodologies.
WalkingLab and artist Matt Prest have created The Warren Run. During the run, participants will race through a suburban obstacle course of people’s driveways, backyards, fences and swimming pools in a residential section of Marrickville known as ‘The Warren’.
Join WalkingLab and artist Rebecca Conroy have created Walking to Laundromat, an audio walk that combines mindfulness practice with doing the laundry in an attempt to explain the interconnections between service economy, emotional capital, and affective labour from the perspective of the artists exceptional labouring body.
This one-day forum on live art, social and community practice is focused on interrogating methodologies of practice with a particular emphasis on pedagogies of not knowing, ethics of participation, and issues of colonization, climate, and place.
WalkingLab is running a two-day symposium in Sydney, Australia. The symposium offers experiential opportunities for scholars to participate in two walking excursions designed to activate our senses: a food tour and a food forage.
Stephanie Springgay and Sarah E. Truman will give a lecture at St. Paul Art Gallery, Auckland, NZ and discuss WalkingLab and walking methodologies that attend to transmateriality, affect, and Land.
