Murmur Land Studios is an experimental school initiative offering event-based pedagogy in art, philosophy, movement, ecology and community for the post-anthropocene era. Our attempt is to curate spaces of creative inquiry which attract diverse makers, thinkers and doers together around thematic concerns relevant to the challenging times which lay before us. We are interested in exploring the varied human and more-than-human relations that weave and co-compose new possibilities for joy and survival.

Sean Smith is one of the three founding members of the Murmur Land Studios curatorial collective launching this program.  Sean teaches both Wearable Art and Site and Intervention in the First-Year Program in the Faculty of Art. He brings his art teaching experience at OCADU and PhD in Media Philosophy to his role as faculty of the MLS field schools.

Applications are open now for our 2017 events: "The City in Reverse: Diagramming Intelligent Systems" (July - Sherbrooke, NS) and "Wander Lines: Mythodological Escapism" (August - Saysutshun/Newcastle Island, BC). Deadline is December 15.
