A New Approach
Nomadic residencies for artists and researchers
BecomeBecome non-profit programs combine transdisciplinary residencies, exhibitions, creative incubators, and art immersions in local communities. Our process-based approach to learning, knowledge, and creativity is syncretic because it combines different beliefs, practices, and schools of thought. It is holistic because it integrates information that kindles the rational mind while also including aspects of each participant's emotions, feelings, and somatic awareness.
We propose embodied intuition and movement-based exercises to activate the intelligence of the body. We use strategies based on Somatics and Psychology to access transpersonal information from the subconscious and integrate it into our creative process. We research Cybernetics and Cognitive Science to advance innovation and creativity beyond repetitive behavioural and psychological patterns.
Our projects are always collaborative and include experts from various fields.
We are particularly committed to including the following elements in our events:
An original cross-sector collaboration between academia, art actors, local organisations, and social entrepreneurs. This creates positive outcome for the participants and the community where BecomeBecome events takes place.
A process-based, fluid, evolving, and adaptable model that leverages scientific research and empirical evidence.
A holistic peer-to-peer learning methodology based on group-dynamics and original exercises.
Connecting individuals and institutions from different countries to transform cultural prejudice while capitalising on local talent and unique regional heritage.
Fostering a process for the creation of new knowledge that can continue beyond when the BecomeBecome events take place.
Through our approach and multiplier events, we strive to distribute the tools and language necessary for each participant to develop new BecomeBecome events based on their own original ideas.
The fundamental principles that underpin the BecomeBecome approach are explained in the Ph.D. thesis:
