International webinar addressing "Arts education in humanitarian aid”
Saturday 23 May 2020 from 16:00h to 17:30h CEST
The WAAE webinar aims to exchange experiences and expertise on arts education in humanitarian programmes. It is recognized that artistic practices are a source of well-being and would develop this potential, particularly among young people and children in war zones and situations of displacement (refugee camps, etc.). The emergency humanitarian system offers child protection programmes and education programmes in emergency situations conducted by United Nations organizations and international and national NGOs. These programmes often rely on artistic practices to develop non-formal, alternative and more responsive methods of education. Through this webinar, we propose to three participants who have conducted and/or observed workshops on artistic practices in the framework of humanitarian interventions to share their practices, their reflections on the issues at stake and their advices. The webinar is targeting national/local policymakers and stakeholders, international and regional art organizations, artists; art educators; social workers; academics, and students.
