Welcome! I am Filippa, a museum educator and instructor, currently a doctoral student at Teachers College, Columbia NYC. Living in Manhattan was always a dream of mine. Doing research on Art Museum Education is pure bliss -not always easy, yet always beautiful.
I am particularly interested in how you and I, learn within the galleries of an art museum. In fact, I believe that we learn through and with our bodies. My work and research focus on the body and the ways the body becomes a medium for learning, within a gallery. I believe that encounters with art are always open-ended possibilities for becoming.
I am also fascinated by the blurred boundaries of art and science, or sciart if you wish. This sciart landscape is out there, calling for exploration. Art and science are two distinct terranes and it is wonderful when we build bridges between them.
In 2016, as a platform for exploration, I founded The Drama Science Lab with the goal to bring people together and further explore the idea of sciart as a new way of seeing life while at the same time somatic learning (drama) becomes the core pedagogical approach.
Does any of this sound appeal to you? Contact me here -looking forward to sharing more with you and listen to *your* story.
