What forms of invisible and visible cultural destruction impact interdisciplinary approaches to culture, identity politics, the preservation of memory and result in new configurations of power, privilege and powerlessness to excavate new insights from global meta-narratives (including, but not limited to, sustainability, transnational politics and nature building, religion, identity politics, and reconceptualizing human/nature relations)?
Over the past several years, Warrior Ethos/Warrior Ecologies has become a Music Research Strategies vehicle for exploring emergent strategies and gathering narratives of fugitivity generated from reimagining campaign strategies, performing research and performing-political education.
Warrior Ethos is a critical collaboration strategy positioning community-based institutions to build solidarity, diversity, and capacity across social justice disciplines by developing political education and performance ventures to broaden a social change community. The primary goals of this community are to facilitate knowledge and capacity-building in collaboration with community-based organizations and their constituents around culturally determined discourses, aesthetic systems, semiotic systems, conceptual frameworks, history and cultural codes/modes of communicating, listening, working and thinking. Warrior Ethos is a critical and collaborative engagement across cultures and disciplines, utilizing peer-to-peer, project-based, pedagogical methods applied to publishing analysis, criticism, theory and documenting praxis, as well as producing performance exhibitions, artwork, and public programming.
Music Research Strategies instigates the collection, indexing, and critical redeployment of active, grassroots campaign strategies as a lexicon for a conduction method for Creative Music performance. Warrior Ethos praxes, the Indexical Moment/um research complex, and Sonic Facilitations are each designed to directly impact narrative and policy change dynamics through critical arts practices and engagement management.
