Symposium on Artistic Interventions in educational and social contexts
An event of the Certificate Course “Artistic Interventions in Cultural Education” at the University of Hildesheim, funded by Stiftung Mercator: Friday, 8th July – Saturday, 9th July 2022 at the University of Hildesheim / Main Campus and Cultural Campus at the Domain of Marienburg.
The Symposium addresses artists working in the field of Cultural Education and other societal contexts, scientists and scholars, students and practitioners in the fields of Cultural Education and Cultural Mediation as well as representatives from cultural and education institutions and administrations.
Art bears a particular potential for cultural education processes. Experiencing artistic principles and processes can stimulate inquisitiveness, independent and unconventional thought and action as well as one’s self-perception and that of one’s environment among children, youths and adults. It can also strengthen awareness of self-efficacy and of complex societal contexts. The International Symposium seeks to create access to and discuss knowledge and insights relating to cultural and education policy programmes in various countries, demonstrate a wide range of perspectives on aims, potentials and impacts of cultural interventions in educational contexts and make different artistic concepts and strategies for working in various social and educational contexts experienceable in practice workshops run by artists.
The key objectives and issues of the Symposium:
+++ Making accessible and discussing knowledge and insights regarding cultural and education policy programmes of the public sector and private foundations for artists in cultural education in various countries
+++ Demonstrating international perspectives on goals, potentials and impacts of artistic activities in different societal contexts
+++ Getting to know different artistic concepts and practices for working in educational contexts among artists in various fields
We are happy to invite you to spend two days with us getting to know and discussing international positions and gaining impulses for your own work from them.
The Symposium will be held in English.
Admission is free of charge.
The number of participants is limited to 200.
Please register by May 31, 2022.
