Partners – Embodied Knowledge Bureau
The Embodied Knowledge Bureau is a space for investigating, reclaiming, and engaging the body – and an embodied understanding of the mind – within artistic and academic frameworks. Our platform integrates movement and somatic workshops, open discussions, lectures, and film screenings that seek to mend current disciplinary blindspots and language barriers that often exist between academics and experiential experts. EKB emerges out of a longing to mesh fields typically deemed separate — to grant access to knowledge that is too often confined to specific institutional frameworks.
When dominant educational theories, pedagogical practices, and institutional structures omit the body, can somatic literacy serve as a tipping point for transformation? In a cultural, economic, and technological climate that increasingly addresses subjects as disembodied brains, what unique forms of expression, sense-making, and knowledge-sharing can embodied awareness uncover?
