Teaching Artist Journal, v11 n4 p234-246 2013
Stories in the "ALT/Space" section of each issue of "Teaching Artist Journal" illustrate and document a wide variety of topics surrounding the work of teaching artists while simultaneously revealing some larger truths about what it means to be an artist who teaches. This particular section focuses on the process and realities of collaboration from four different vantage points. It is clear that collaboration can be part of many teaching artists' work but, as illustrated here, the reality of this activity is not nearly so straightforward. The four stories included in this section touch on one or more of the following questions: (1) What does it mean to be a teaching artist working within collaboration? (2) How do teaching artists go about merging their vision and experience with the needs and ideas of the people with whom they work? (3) Can teaching be a form of collaboration? (4) The idea of building partnerships is all well and good, but how does a teaching artist navigate the inevitable complexity and uncertainty of such a venture? and (5) Given the often independent, solo work teaching artists do, what does it look like when they collaborate with one another? The following stories are included: (1) Listen to Your Teacher: Collaborating with Staff in an Alaska School Theatre Residency (Ryan Conarro); (2) Finding Common Ground (Allison Upshaw); (3) Learning with My Students (Suzanne Makol); (4) My Teaching Artist "Ohana" (Daniel A. Kelin, II); and (5) What If? Making Way for Collaboration (Jeff Redman).
