This course explores art intervention in cities and rural environments that utilize methods of improvisation and indeterminacy to address social and environmental issues. The class will examine the relationships and dialogue between traditional and contemporary practices of problem solving in communities. The class will work on collaborating on the design and curriculum of the Music School, M’Hamid El Ghizlane Oasis for disadvantaged youth in the South Sahara, Morocco with Aziza Chaouni Projects and NGO Playing for Change , Sahara Roots Foundation and Zalia. This may lead to field work term opportunities for two students to study and work at the school.
