Witnessing Garden 404
engaged with pandemic transformations within educational resources, durations, protocols, and modes of evaluation. In collaboration with artists and educators, I've been building upon the problematic condition of hybrid learning, while conducting a series of collaborative experimentations at the community garden Volkstuinvereniging Streven naar Verbetering
in Rotterdam. Employing our respective methodologies, we explored resilient modes of sensorial learning in disjoined environments of screen-based pandemic education. This journey activated learning as relating to the bounded Earth’s human and more-than-human beings, and essentially created a land-based classroom
of a dialogue between theory and practice. We also looked into various self-organised happenings of arts, pedagogy, and activism that reclaim learning spaces in the city through gardening labours
such as witnessing, broadcasting, resting, sprinkling, rooting, composting, etc.
