Ways of Being is a multi-platform pedagogical project which offers practices of collaboration, contemplation, and social-ecological analysis for visual artists. Ways of Being is for arts educators who want to connect art to economy; for students who want to make artworks that reflect the conditions of their own production. Ways of Being is a book, a series of videos, a deck of cards, and an interactive website with freely downloadable content.
Caroline Woolard, Susan Jahoda, and Emilio Martinez Poppe have been developing Ways of Being since 2015 as a contribution to BFAMFAPhD. The card game is done and the printed book will be available to order through Punctum Books in the summer of 2017. Email us if you would like to read a draft: firstname.lastname@example.org
