No Masters of Revolutionary Arts

Produced this piece as a gift, inspired by Steve Lambert’s intervention (which I’ve mentioned before) and the degrees conferred by Rochdale College in Toronto (something which has also come up before)

Emma Goldman Institute For Anarchist Studies @ UC Davis c/o 1goodpotato

From the Rochdale College Museum:

“Tuition for the B.A. granting course is $25.00. Course length is 24 hours, and the degree will awarded on answering of a skill testing question. Tuition for the M.A. granting course is $50.00. During this course, the length of which will be determined by the student, the student will be required to answer a skill testing question of his choice. For a Ph.D. the tuition is $100.00 and there will be no questions asked.

We are also offering Non-Degrees at comparable rates. A Non-Ph.D. is $25.00. Course duration is your choice; requirements are simple, we ask that you say something. A Non-M.A. is $50.00 for which we require you to say something logical. A Non-B.A. is $100.00; you will be required to say something useful.”

Free the Streets Pt. 2

So I started this blog a year ago today.

This has been a great space to share my work and encounters as a student at the Emma Goldman Institute for Anarchist Studies (EGIAS). The EGIAS is a school that doesn’t exist, but should. And for that reason it can exist anywhere. So I enrolled myself.

Since I started a new job in January, I haven’t been able to read and write as much and I’ve fallen out of the rhythm of posting here.

Now I’ve started working on a new blog project that works better with my schedule and current interests.

Free the Streets. A photoblog on *political* posters and street art in Toronto. Documenting it, making it, loving it.

The cool thing about tumblr is it’s a great platform for collaboration and I really hope to be able to do that with Free the Streets. People can submit posts or join as regular contributors.

I’ll still be posting here (and really, the inspiration for this project was laid out here and here), just know that most of the action will be over there for now!

P.S. Steve Lambert, the creator of the Emma Goldman Institute of Anarchist Studies art intervention, is looking for people to support his cool new project on Kickstarter
