Open for Making, A Residency for Creativity

Open for Making, A Residency for Creativity, 2009

Open for Making was an public art residency program that was inspired by my trip to The Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada where I met with Paul Butler, Director of the Creative Residency Reverse Pedagogy at Banff in November, 2008.  Once back home in San Francisco, I designed a residency program that would take place at Triple Base Gallery every Saturday for five weeks. The goal of these residency was to create an inspiring and productive environment for creative thinking – even if only for one day.

Each day was organized with varied programs and special guests from the community.   This innovative residency program was molded from art school, working directly with practicing artists, embracing new fields of study and by examining alternative teaching models.
