#TrainingYRHuman seeks participants.

#TrainingYRHuman is a participatory Twitter-based performance and installation about the agency of animals who live with human-animals. Created by (Leila Nadir and Cary Peppermint).

About the project: While new scientific research has illuminated animals’ behaviors, their ethical attitudes, modes of cognition, and psychological awareness, our everyday experiences can also tell us a lot about our companion species if we listen carefully—about their diverse personalities and creative problem-solving and the ways they invent to express themselves and meet their needs and desires in a human-dominated world.

How to participate:
1. Login to (Create an account if you don’t have one. It’s free and easy!)
2. Write a Tweet from your companion animal’s perspective that includes the tag #TrainingYRHuman.
