The future revised UNESCO global Framework aims to capture a broadened understanding of culture – from heritage to the cultural and creative industries – while taking into consideration the fast-evolving landscape of the cultural sector, including digital transformation. Digital and media technologies are ever more intertwined with the daily lives of learners, thus there is a need to both harness the opportunities it brings, but also strengthen the awareness of technology and how to use it responsibly.
For the preparation of the revised UNESCO global Framework for Culture and Arts Education, the Organization is conducting an inclusive and participatory consultation among a variety of stakeholders, including Member States, UNESCO Chairs and partner networks and non-governmental organizations, regional organizations, local governments, cultural institutions, culture and arts education teachers, individual experts, and youth. WAAE is one of the stakeholders. During the WAAE Summit in Madeira , March 2023, WAAE organised 5 open sessions to capture the main concerns and suggestions of arts educators.
In Collaboration with UNESCO WAAE conducted an online survey aiming to seek the views of educators in culture and arts education. It was designed by the World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE), in consultation with UNESCO.
The survey was launched on the 2nd March 2023 at the WAAE World Summit of Arts Education in Madeira, Portugal. The survey form accepts replies until the 15 April 2023.

WAAE delegates will present the results of the survey and open session dialogue in Madeira during the Multistakeholder Dialogue that will be held on 25 and 26 May 2023 at UNESCO Headquarters. The Dialogue will allow for exchanges between a wide range of actors working in culture and arts education to strengthen ministerial buy-in, and shape solid recommendations to feed into the final drafting of the Framework and the World Conference on Culture and Arts Education 2023 to be held in December 2023 in the United Arab Emirates.
