Project coordinator

Target group:

Project objectives:

To reach our objectives we will

  • explore existing research concerning art engagement, as well as initiate own needs assessment activities in the form of questionnaires, round tables or action research
  • gather good practices from the partner organisations and their countries that link art education and cross-cultural dialogue
  • share these practices
  • run local workshops to try out and further develop the practices we identified

Project Description

If art is a form of communication, of dialogue, it is by definition an intercultural dialogue. Like any intercultural dialogue, the encounter with art always involves an encounter with an otherness, a special mirror which reflects what we like, what scares or disturbs us. The project is based on the collaboration of four organizations from four countries representing four different contexts of educational work with art. Together they were committed to exploring the potential of art as a dialogue, and identify the tools available to arts practitioners and educators to facilitate the engagement in the arts.
