intertwining hi/stories
of arts education

Public Symposium: Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd of June, 2018 
Class for MA students: Friday 1st – Tuesday 5th of June, 2018

Shedhalle, Rote Fabrik
Seestr. 295, Zürich

The symposium invites students, art educators, researchers and cultural producers to reflect on the histories of education in and through art. The symposium emphasizes the fact that historiography in arts education means referring to a plurality of hi/stories as perceived from different geopolitical perspectives. Presenting international and Swiss historical case studies, the aim of the gathering is to discuss: how are these hi/stories, their relations and intertwinings relevant for the development of current practice in arts education?

Researchers working on arts education histories and their global connections and relations in the framework of the project intertwining hi/stories of arts education will present and discuss their case studies in lectures and workshops. A panel with lecturers from Swiss universities will discuss the relevance of historical knowledge in international perspectives for training in art education in Switzerland.

The project intertwining hi/stories of arts education aims to generate learning resources for professional development. The symposium and the class for MA students in Arts Education in Basle, Bern, Lucerne and Zurich connected to it invite participants to draw on the research for a reflection of their own practice and to experiment with a first set of learning cards in a game format.
