GOALS

2014/04/01

Meta-goals:

  •  Form a functional, cohesive, supportive, and self-managing community of artists that supports collaborative groups and projects.
  • Collectively agree, during the course of study, to place the work of the community (and the collaborative groups that form from it) before individual artistic work
  • Collectively agree to place a high priority on mutual respect and constructive behavior in the interactions of the community’s (and collaborative groups’) members
  • Collectively understand that the PIMA studio is your fellow students, and that to spend time “in the studio” means to spend time with your collaborators, regardless of the physical location of the meeting. Collectively agree that students will spend, on average, 20+ hours per week in face-to-face collaborative situations.
