THE UNESCO REPORT Reimagining our futures together: a new social contract for education is AVAILABLE NOW
Reimagining our futures together: a new social contract for education
Excerpt from pg. 73 of the Futures of Education report:
Building imagination, judgment and possibility through arts education
Education in the arts – music, drama, dance, design, visual arts, literature, poetry and more – can greatly expand students’ capacities to master complex skills and can support social and emotional learning across the curriculum. It can enhance our human abilities to access the experience of others, whether through empathy or the reading of non-verbal clues.
The arts also make visible certain truths that are sometimes obscured and provide concrete ways to celebrate multiple perspectives and interpretations of the world. Many forms of artistic expression traffic in subtleties and grapple with life’s ambiguities; students can learn that small difference can have large effects. Artistic experience often requires a willingness to surrender to the unknown; students can learn that everything changes with circumstance and opportunity. The arts also help us learn to say, show, and feel what needs to be said, shown, and felt, helping to advance the horizons of knowing, being, and communicating in and beyond the arts.
Curricula that invite creative expression through the arts have tremendous future-shaping potential. Artmaking provides new languages and means through which to make sense of the world, engage in cultural critique, and take political action. Curricula can also cultivate critical appreciation and engagement with cultural heritage and the powerful symbols, repertoires, and references of our collective identities.
The purpose of the summit is to bring together arts education professionals worldwide to share the latest research, thought, and practice in arts education assessment and evaluation. We invite primary and secondary school arts educators, higher education professionals, arts education researchers and policymakers, national, state and local education officials from across the world to join us online on October 11-15, 2021.
The impact of the arts and arts education is wide and significant. As a global arts education community, we seek to know the impact of our work in the many contexts in which it manifests. Assessment and evaluation of the impact of arts learning and arts programming involves complex and valuable processes that are shaped by the contexts in which arts education takes place. From design to implementation to analysis, unveiling the impact of our work is achieved in multiple ways – through various designs, models, and practices.
Registration for the summit is now open .

Theatre educators all over the world are creating work and are looking for new ways to make performances. During this 36 hours online festival IDEA creates an open and inclusive space where members will share their work/practices/research with the world. This is a festival without curation, all languages are welcome and because of the non-stop program the festival will also be time-zone friendly. On the 28th and 29th of August the IDEA TOGETHER WE GO ON Festival will be there for the community within and outside IDEA.
We live in challenging times and the best way to deal with that is to share the ways we respond to a crisis as an interconnected, global and participatory theatre society. The TOGETHER WE GO ON festival is there for us to support each other in the work we are making.
Our goal is to make a festival that doesn't exclude anyone. IDEA is an organization for everyone that cares about theatre and the people it is created with. That is why we organize this time-zone free and language-inclusive online festival.

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.
