Skye Maule-O’Brien is committed to engaging educational programming and community action research through the merging of artistic, pedagogical and academic thought. Her interests lie in using transformative learning through creative and critical pedagogy to explore how experiences of race, sexuality, and gender inform our lives. Working as an educator for fifteen years, she holds a BFA in Art History with a minor in Adult Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Studies from Concordia University. Her SSHRC-supported Master’s research—a selection published in the academic journal Muséologies (2014)—looks at anti-racist feminist pedagogy and the possibilities it offers for community education initiatives at Montreal artist-run centres. Currently pursuing a PhD in Education at York University, her work explores how our intimate lives are spaces of knowledge creation, political action, and resistance.
