In this chapter we discuss how a pedagogical intervention became a site for intense engagement among faculty members, graduate teaching and research assistants, and visiting artists. This engagement acted as a site for intercultural exchange where we questioned assumptions about art and education, with the intention of disrupting and examining these assumptions before positing potentialities for what art and education could become and how it might move in such directions. The intervention led to ongoing processes of intravention—those self-reflexive practices that purposefully make connections between and among research projects. The intercultural nature of our work is evident in our diverse cultural, educational, philosophical, and artistic backgrounds situated within our varied histories and socio-cultural contexts.
