In the fall of 2020 Andrew Bush put out a call to friends and colleagues–a call both simple and complex: could there be a coming together for study outside of institutional confines? What if teachers and students gathered together where there were no grades, no credentials offered, earned? What would happen in this space? The manifesto for such a space of radical study is now a JARA Collective pamphlet, available for free and in an unlimited edition. Stay tuned for more info about where to pick up this pamphlet–we may try to make it something you can download from this site! For now, you can get copies at the Art Jameel Bookstore in Dubai. And stay tuned for more follow-up from The Shelter Seminar’s first participants: what happened in this space for radical study? What might be next?
