Spanning nine months and two residencies, I had the honor and pleasure of working with Jerry McGrath in the New Fundamentals program at the Banff Centre. Having had extensive experience with fellowship and residency programs and cohorts, I found New Fun to be one of the most rewarding professional development and non-academic educational experiences of my career, to date. I attribute this to Jerry’s mastery at seeding and curating likely, meaningful relationships between colleagues, and his ability to design programs that promote deep inquiry, paired with tangible skill enhancement.

Ferment  is an incubator hosted by  ukai Projects  in Toronto. Through exploration of opportunities related to artificial intelligence, financial instruments, urban development, and international borders, the year-long incubators hopes to increase the diversity of stories available to us to make sense of the world; preserve stories and ways of knowing so that they are not lost to future generations; offset the trend toward algorithmic optimization of culture at the expense of the hard work and education required to develop personal taste; to offer time and support to approaches that the market might not currently support; and to accelerate projects that disrupt how we deal with massive problems affecting us and subsequent generations.  Ferment is an effort to help people outside traditional and institutional spheres of cultural production do their work and contribute to our collective well-being. The incubator is predicated on the idea that we will need systems and institutions focused on more than competition and growth if we hope to overcome the massive challenges we face as communities and as a species.
