ICASP welcomes creative input of new partner, RENDER

Speculate, incubate, innovate, cultivate, and create are the catchwords of RENDER, ICASP’s latest partner. Based at the University of Waterloo, RENDER was established in 2006 with the goal of shifting the focus of the university’s art gallery away from a traditional public gallery model to a more innovative and relevant approach that positions art, design, critical thought, and creative research in a much broader context.

RENDER will contribute to the design and implementation of ICASP research through its DodoLab model by running creative labs in collaboration with, and in response to, the work of other ICASP partners and researchers. Through DodoLab, RENDER will produce documentation in a variety of unconventional formats as well as written reviews and public presentations to share and disseminate research.

...partly because I know that’s the only way that we could solve a creative problem [using improvisation with children ranging in abilities] and what doesn’t work is trying to impose a template on the students who are not able to respond to that template.

– Pauline Oliveros (in working with Abilities First)
