UNESCO invites organizations and networks to mobilize their stakeholders and partners to engage in the global debate on the futures of education and provide inputs to the International Commission on the Futures of Education
The conference is titled Art Education in the Time of Coronavirus, Reflecting on Today, Anticipating Tomorrow and we are currently organising it in cooperation with our colleagues from InSEA, USSEA, and the Canterbury Christ Church University. The conference will be held from 12 to 15 October 2020 exclusively on this web platform: https://www.inseaconference.com/
The conference will be free of charge for all active and passive participants.
We would be delighted if you could participate actively in it.
If you or your colleagues decide to participate, your contribution to the conference can be variable; it can be a combination of formats. For example, it can be a recorded video with a presentation (with a textual form attached to it), a brief video-greeting in which you refer to your text-based or image-based contribution, it can be an invitation to a 'live' real-time presentation that will be streamed on YouTube or Zoom, etc. However, we prefer contributions that are prepared beforehand, as we are aware of the various time zones of the conference participants and for fearing technical failures. For more details, please see: https://www.inseaconference.com/for-authors
