A European Symposium for Experts on Arts Education
Tuesday, May 27th - Thursday, May 29th 2008 in Wildbad Kreuth
The UNESCO-Road Map has been elaborated in the context of the World conference on Arts Education in 2006 in Lisbon. A second World conference on Arts Education will be hosted by Korea in 2010. The symposium examined ways and means of making the Road Map contribute to the further development of an Arts Education for All in Europe. It also initiated a joint European preparatory process for the upcoming Arts Education World conference in Seoul/Korea 2010 (probably March 2010).
The symposium started with an introductory keynote on the concepts and content of the UNESCO Road Map for Arts Education and its implications for European policy, research and practice in arts education. Specific aspects of the Road Map and expectations of stakeholders, institutions and partners involved has been discussed broadly. Furthermore, resource persons and experts from all over Europe shared important insights and proposals. The symposium finally elaborated elements for a European position to be introduced at the next World Conference 2010.
The German Commission for UNESCO and the Hanns Seidel Foundation, Munich, organised this symposium in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture, the Austrian Commission for UNESCO and Kulturkontakt Austria.
