AGGROculture Collective offered its first residency in March, to Canadian graduate student, Arthur Ostrowski. Keith Tallett instructed the two week course, which covered theory and practice of surfboard shaping and included the examination of materials and processes in the context of contemporary art. Keith is a founding member of AGGROculture Collective and second generation surfboard shaper. Ostrowski is a current candidate in the Masters of Fine Arts program at the University of Calgary in Canada and learned of Keith from his graduate professor Jean-René Leblanc, while doing research for his thesis. The residency included private lodging at Keolamauloa Farm, materials, access to work space, 30 hours of course instruction, and exploratory missions into the local surf community.
