The 2nd InSEA Webinar in the South-East Asia and Pacific Region:
New Directions in Art Education
Monday 11 October 2021
Across the diverse physical and cultural countries, regions and localised contexts in Southeast Asia and the Pacific, arts and cultural workers have been hit hard by the pandemic’s economic toll. The impact of COVID-19 in the Global South on the visual arts, visual arts education and higher education is unprecedented. We seek to acknowledge the effect the pandemic continues to have on the cultural, creative and education sectors across area. Restrictions on public gatherings and state and international border closures have forced many in the visual arts community to cancel programs and activities.
As a result of teaching, learning, and living in anxious and precarious times we invite you to this 2nd InSEA South-East Asia and Pacific regional webinar to collaborate and consider new directions for art education in a pandemic.
Colourful Narratives of Resilience
In this Webinar, participants are invited to discuss the importance and value of resilience amidst the pandemic. The webinar will anchor on the cultural and creative lens in illustrating stories that highlight lessons from the pandemic. Through this webinar, we would be able to unravel and identify the symbols and peculiar patterns embedded in the participant’s culture on how resilience is defined in various cultures and communities. The webinar is being led by InSEA member and Filipina visual artist, Anna Karina Jardin. Anna Karina is a children’s book illustrator, educator and Creative Projects Management Consultant based in Malaysia. She believes in the power of art in creating a positive social impact.
