Longboarding: It's All Downhill from Here

BY JAIME LANGEWEG
@ VOL 26 ON APR 09, 2015

Skateboarding has become a massively commercialised sport. Wich completely contradicts the rebellious nature and roots of this pass time. These past few years we have seen an uprise of the longboarding movement. This new group has remarkably different values and ideas than the classic streetskater. But, in the end they still practise the same sport. Can these differences progress the sport as a whole? 

It’s All Downhill from Here

In this presentation, Jaime Langeweg tries to answer the question: why do I skate? Jaime explains what it means to have flow in one’s life. The act of fluid style and movement in skateboarding translates very well to other aspects of life. For example, having flow in your writing, drawing and even studying can massively improve your productivity.

The Transdisciplinarity of Dance

BY SYED FAIZAAN AHAB
@ VOL 5 ON APR 29, 2018

A lot of times people associate dance with entertainment, others use it as a medium of expression. Some dance for fitness and for others, it is a profession. Faizaan Ahab decided to upgrade the significance of what it meant to him and experimented with it as an "Instrument of Learning". The presentation talks about the marriage of academic principles with dance to enhance experiential learning. Faizaan talks about three academic disciplines, mathematics, psychology and design mapping, all three using dance as a learning aid, hence making it transdiciplinary in nature.
