Provoking Curricula of Care: Weaving Stories of Rupture Towards Repair
Keywords:stories of care, curriculum co-inquiry, arts-based inquiry, life writing, métissage, healing
AbstractWe are five scholars of education, provoking curriculum on the topic of “care”—as practice, theory, and struggle, through our stories of living, teaching, and learning. Our inquiries surface threads of rupture, where we find that “care” indicates our efforts to address suffering. Our care-work consists of restorative, creative, and contemplative practices. We tell our stories through a literary métissage (weaving) of creative non-fiction, poetic writing, artwork, and images. We thus creatively expand the meaning of care by evoking our understandings, lived experiences, and practices of caring. In this way, we hope to create more attuned relationships, and open the way for more stories of “care” to emerge.
