Welcome!

This blog is the digital space where I reside online. This space is open to students, interested readers, and is a place where I share my adventures in reading, challenge the status quo, present ideas, and share new and captivating finds from the field of education and the wider world -- both on and offline.

I ask that if you have private questions to please email me at my University of Ottawa account rather than post here.

Welcome to Dismaland!

How might we think through this anti-establishment dystopian theme park "not suitable for adults"? The 2.5 acre show features installations by 58 artists, including 10 works from Banksy himself who described the production as “a festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism.”  
The Economist and the amazing art and design website Colossal have pictures and articles about this installation.

What does a theme park like this do to your childhood memories about Disney?  What does it do to the corporatized ideal that has become Disney?
