A translocal collaborative project linking researchers, artists and students in three cities: Regina, Canada; Coventry, UK; and Gyumri, Armenia. Devised by Rachelle Viader Knowles as a constituent project of Meet In the Middles: Stations of Migration and Memory in Art and Film: http://www.mitmproject.info. The project presented a platform for translocal (local to local) creative interactions using online screen-based media and on the ground dialogues. The project utilised a practice-as-research methodology, to further research in the area of education-as-art which blurs the distinction between ‘art’ and ‘education’, the so-called educational turn in art. Bishop (2012, 241). Four outputs resultant from this project:
1. Three linked live project exhibitions: at the Fifth Parallel Gallery in Regina, Canada; the Lanchester Gallery in Coventry, UK; Gallery 25 in Gyumri, Armenia (Sept – Oct 2014).
2. A suite of 5 linked papers presented as a colloquium session “#3CityLink: a translocal art/pedagogy exchange project” at the Arts In Society conference (Imperial College London, July 2015).
