The New Centre for Research & Practice

The New Centre for Research & Practice is conceived upon the idea that the space of knowledge is a laboratory for navigating the links between thought and action. Our pedagogical approach bootstraps the conventional role of the Arts and Sciences to construct new forms of research and practice alongside, within, and between the existing disciplines and technologies. The New Centre’s aim is a constructivist one, to assemble an environment, both virtual and actual, that inspires our members to invent alternate understandings that can be put into collective practice.

The New Centre is a non-profit, higher education institute offering graduate-level certificate programs, workshops, seminars, exhibitions, residencies, and conferences in Critical Philosophy, Social & Political Thought, Curatorial Practice, and Transdisciplinary Research & Practice. Our carefully selected network of thinkers and scholars advise and assist those seeking to make the transition between undergraduate and graduate schools, as well as from graduate school to the professions. Through studying at the New Centre, students practice graduate level research in a manner that does not interrupt their existing academic aspirations, but instead complements, enhances, and intensifies them.
