It all started in January 2016, when Jorja Smith uploaded Blue Lights to Soundcloud, her self-released debut single. Since the age of 16, shed been writing stories through music. Stories of observation, love, and anger. The stories that are unfolding around us all everyday, but that most of us are too distracted to notice. Blue Lights was one of those. Written after watching Dizzee Rascal music videos while taking a break from her A-Level dissertation (titled: Is Postcolonialism Still Present in Grime Music) the song was inspired by the hostile situations innocent young black men were facing every day, not just in her local town of Walsall but around the world. The song blew up, earning the praise of Skrillex and Stormzy, before it was eventually included on Drakes OVO radio show.Since then, Jorja has gone on to create a name for herself as a gifted young R&B songwriter with a masterful knack for crafting melodies that make you feel like you could be anywhere from a smoky Parisian jazz club to a North London warehouse party. Her debut EP, Project 11, was a flowing collection of songs knitted together by the soulful elasticity of her voice.Earlier this year, she came fourth in BBCs Sound of 2017, and has already been nominated for a MOBO. And while most teenagers in London are spending their commutes to work listening to Drake, Jorjas in there collaborating with the Toronto megastar on Get It Together, featuring on his More Life project, and performing as a special guest at his UK headline shows. All this for a girl whos only just turned 20, and hasnt even released her debut album.Jorja grew up in the industrial West Midlands town of Walsall. Both of her parents were musical, and BBC Radio 1Xtra was constantly playing in the kitchen, blasting out bassline classics like T2s Heartbroken as she did her homework. Little did she know that ten years later shed be performing live on the station, as the special live performer for Trevor Nelsons last ever Live Lounge.Encouraged by her parents, she started playing keyboard at the age of 8, and was learning to sing classical by secondary school. Its something that still influences her now, and you can hear it in the vast range of her voice or in certain moments like the choral opening harmonies of Something in the Way.Her mother was a jewellery maker, and her father who is of Jamaican-origin was a singer and songwriter in the neo-soul band 2nd Naicha. When she first finished a demo of Blue Lights she ran downstairs and played it to him. Good song, good lyrics, he said, Now, go to bed.Summers as a teenager were spent floating around town in her friends cars, her fragmented memories of it permeated by the sounds of Frank Oceans Channel Orange and Chance The Rappers Acid Rap, which would always been drifting through the car stereo. From the backseat, shed listen to her friends talk about boyfriends and girlfriends, sweet nothings and broken hearts, and cultivate them into ideas for songs. All of the songs that would make it onto her debut EP were written during these adolescent years.She was intrigued by London, her ideas of it coloured by the lyrics of Lily Allens LDN which painted the city as some sort of bittersweet wonderland. She met her manager at 16 after he saw videos of her performing covers on YouTube, and soon she started making regular trips to the capital to meet him and work in the studio with Maverick Sabre and Ed Thomas. She eventually made the move permanent, transferring her job at Starbucks in Walsall to London, and bunking in the spare room of her aunt and uncles. Shed be on the bus at 5am each day for her morning shifts at Starbucks, crossing Waterloo bridge and looking out at the city in the hours before the sun rose, LP1 by fka Twigs playing in her headphones.To Jorja, the most important thing in music is lyrics. She was always fascinated by the way Nas looked at the world and how Amy Winehouse managed to speak truth from the deepest recesses of her heart. Ive got little cousins who look up to me, smiles Jorja Smith. I grew up listening to honest artists like Amy, not rude or vulgar stuff. I want to be that honest figure for people.Beautiful Little Fools (which was released on International Womens Day) is a perfect example of this. Its inspired by a quote from F Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby: I hope shell be a foolthats the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool. The song explores the ways in which expectations of women are shaped not by women themselves but by the demands of society and the media. Its a piece of music that is as tender as it is a rally cry.But not every song is as philosophical. Shes young, and sometimes she just wants to have fun and make something she, and maybe even her cousins, can dance to. On My Mind, featuring production from Birminghams Preditah, is just that: a garage-inflected club number that comes with a video featuring cult UK comedy crew Kurupt FM.In 2017 she has completed a US headline tour, joined Bruno Mars on his US tour, and has finished writing her debut album. Featuring songs mostly written between the ages of 16-18, its a youthful exploration of love and anger, but also an album about self-discovery. She wont be putting it out until 2018, though. Why? Because Im not in a rush. Ive never rushed anything in my life. After all, shes still entirely independent, controlling every part of her artistic identity, from music video to artwork to release schedules.Also, I like 2018, because what does 2 plus 0 plus 1 plus 8 equal? she says. Eleven. Which is my favourite number in the world. So, I think its meant to be.

Letting Art Teach

Letting Art Teach
Event on 2018-02-06 13:00:00
LETTING ART TEACH. ART EDUCATION 'AFTER' JOSEPH BEUYS Prof. Gert Biesta  Gert Biesta is one of the most important theorists working in educational discourse today.  He has defended the unique value of education against economic rationalization and its normalization through the ‘language of learning’. In his key works; Beyond Learning (2016), Good education in the Age of Measurement (2010), The Beautiful Risk of Education (2014) Biesta has questioned the extent to which the ‘language of learning’ has supported a redefinition of the student as consumer.  Central to the consumer model of education is a conception of ‘lifelong learning’ which reduces educational attainment to lifelong ‘survival’ in the global economy. Innovation, creativity, adaptability, and resilience are the current buzzwords mobilized to define student needs in the face of economic volatility. Under the conditions of such economic pressure, art and its teaching are instrumentalised in new and insidious ways.  In his new book Letting Art Teach: Art Education After Joseph Beuys (2017) Biesta explores the various ways that art and education are instrumentalised in educational discourse and policy. For Biesta, the teaching of art should enable students to have a unique dialogue with the world beyond its closure by rationalization. Replacing the over-emphasis on  ‘student-centered’ learning with a call for ‘world-centered’ education, Biesta affirms the value of art and teaching as an ‘event’ that opens up spaces for the student to be addressed by the world, and in turn, to address the world back. Letting Art Teach at the Hugh lane Gallery on the 6th Feb will expand on the ideas developed in Letting Art Teach. Education After Joseph Beuys (2017). To enable a broader discussion on these ideas three art educators from three different art institutions have been invited to respond to the presentation, they are: Dr. Brian Fay (DIT), Prof. Brian Hand (NCAD), Dr. Tina Kinsella (IADT). The discussion will be chaired by Dr. Sharon Todd (Maynooth University).

Since April 2016 he has held the NIVOZ Professorship for Education at the University for Humanistic Studies, the Netherlands (0.2). Before this he worked at universities in Luxembourg, Scotland (University of Stirling), England (University of Exeter), and the Netherlands (Utrecht, Leiden and Groningen) and held Visiting Professorships at the University of Orebro, Sweden, Malardalen University, Sweden, and ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, the Netherlands. He is a former Spencer Post-Doctoral Fellow with the National Academy of Education, USA. In January 2015  he became an associate member of the 'Onderwijsraad' (the Education Council of the Netherlands) for the period 2015-2018. The 'Onderwijsraad' is the main government advisory body on education (see here for more information). Since April 2016 he was also scientific advisor to VERUS in the Netherlands. He is joint-coordinator of SIG 25 (Educational Theory) of EARLI, The European Association for Research and Learning and Instruction, together with Rupert Wegerif and Giuseppe Ritella (JURE Assistant Coordinator). For more information click here. Gert is currently co-editor of two book-series with Routledge: New Directions in the Philosophy of Education (with Michael A. Peters) and Theorizing Education (with Julie Allan and Richard Edwards).
