In May 2020, Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) is inviting students to take part in a two-week field school to Colombia’s Calanoa Natural Reserve, an artistic, ecological, and community-focused learning centre located on the shore of the Amazon River. The Amazon makes up a third of Colombia, yet it's one the country's least-explored regions!

I am sitting on the train heading to a small town in Germany called Kassel. The quinquennial contemporary art festival—documenta—is taking place there and as a budding art historian, it is imperative that I visit it during my artistic pilgrimage. After two weeks in Paris, I am looking forward to being in a smaller city. Big cities have their glamour and dynamics, but it is in the countryside that we find the space and air to breath.
