Workshops & Symposiums
In 2022, Jasper contributed to the Wxtch Craft and EARTH CRAFT programs at the Studium Generale of the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague, by hosting dialogues with great minds such as Vandana Shiva and Zhenevere Sophia Dao. Together with academic-activist Victoria McKenzie, Jasper gave a workshop around 'Future Soil' at the Royal Academy The Hague, a workshop ritual which they also conducted during the Is Soil Sacred? symposium, which Griepink organized at MU Hybrid Art House earlier in the year. At the same venue, Jasper curated a reading table with over 40 titles focused on soil belonging and entanglements with the more-than-human. In 2022, Jasper offered the workshops How to Become a Soil Priestess? in collaboration with Mister Motley and RE_NATURE. In 2021, Jasper's work and writing were included in the LAND program at Studium Generale ArtEZ, Arnhem. As part of their Curating work, they also often present contextual and nuanced discourse in orbit of their exhibitions. More on this at the "Curating" tab on this page.



Tutor Ecology Futures MA
Since 2021, Jasper has been teaching in the Ecology Futures MA, with modules such as Community of All Beings and Future Field focusing on the development, contemplation and materialization of 'progressive' more-than-human futurisms. In the module, students are asked to investigate a future ecology, community, or way of life on earth from a more-than-human perspective. The module is both a philosophical pressure cooker, as well as a vision-journey that supports the long-term research of the students. Central is the relation with the 'natural’ environment; plants, animals, minerals, the more-than-human, and perhaps even unseen beings. Students investigate the meaning of ‘nature’ and how it has created false dichotomies. They look at how a queering of the world can bring about new avenues of thought and development, will read about indigenous cosmologies and languages that surpass the western way of seeing things and survey the (hidden) colonial or western/industrial sentiments they are bringing into their proposed futures.

Other Guest Teaching & Contributions
In earlier years, Jasper was a guest tutor at Sandberg Institute's CURE MASTER, University of Amsterdam's Art Primitivism program, and the Fine Arts departments of Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, KABK The Hague, and others. Their work is also included in REGENERART project’s e-learning course and textbook for European secondary school teachers. Besides this, Jasper has developed and thought programs around art & ecology for primary schools in Amsterdam in the period of 2017-2019.

Art Manifestation
RE_NATURE, 2021

  

Since 2021, Jasper co-curates the manifestation RE_NATURE together with curator Imke Ruigrok in several locations in Den Bosch, Netherlands. For RE_NATURE, Jasper focuses on RE_MEMBER: thematic exhibitions and side programs related to UNROOTING and REROOTING in the sense of finding non-western connection and experiences of "nature" and what has destroyed such connections. A selection from the 45 artists presented at RE_NATURE: Iris van Herpen (NL), Olafur Elliasson (DK), Johan Grimonprez (BE), Atelier Van Lieshout (NL), Renzo Martens (BE), Next Nature (NL) and more. The 2021 edition of the RE_MEMBER included: Tabita Rezaire (FR), Institute of Queer Ecology (USA), Melanie Bonajo (NL), Zheng Bo (CN), Arahmaiani (ID), Keiko Sato (JP), Amanda Piña (CL) and Müge Yilmaz (TR). The whole festival presented 45 artists and projects.

Exhibition
All Flourishing is Mutual, 2022



In spring 2022, Jasper Griepink was invited by Colette Olof to co-curate a show in MELKWEG EXPO Amsterdam. Orbiting the work of Robin Wall Kimmerer and notions of the more-than-human, the show All Flourishing is Mutual brought together young, local, and international names such as Sissel Marie Tonn (DK), Layla Durrani & Liza Prins (NL/USA) and others. Through Jasper's invitation, the platform Queer Nature (USA) and artist Ella Yolande (UK) both had their first show in the Netherlands.
