The following pages chronicle a diverse collage of recent un(becoming) and becoming events from arts policy realms, as well as issues, events and programming in the Idaho arts community. Throughout the narration and description, critical analyses of these actual events, and the articulated and sometimes hidden pedagogies of these situations are measured against the criteria of community pedagogy. Rather than examining un(becoming)/becoming as a simple binary, the complexity of evaluating these events as either or both is presented when appropriate. Strong motivation to recognize social change and justice efforts through exercised community pedagogy nonetheless leads the evaluation and analysiS. Local unbecoming tales exemplify challenges to be undone in Idaho, if a truer, and more holistic art education practice is to fully experience its own becoming.
