‘Inspiration Day: Exchange on art and education’

10 May'19
- 10:00

Next Generation, Please!

How can young people fully participate in artistic educational projects? In which ways do young participants appropriate institutional spaces such as schools, cultural centres and public spaces? How do artists, teachers, educators and cultural workers navigate the intersection of institutions, art and education?

On Friday 10 May, BOZAR and Lasso invite you for an exchange on experiences and good practices related to art and education. The departure point of this conversation is Next Generation, Please!, an artistic civic engagement project that brings together artists, young people and politicians and the city project Move It Kanal by Lasso. Then, several Belgian and international guests with experience in art practice with schools will gather around round tables.
