Description research programme of the research group:

The crisis in education

AeCT proposes a radical re-thinking of the matrices of learning and education and takes creativity as a point of departure. It thereby challenges the historically formed concepts of schools and disciplines in a society in transition. It proposes to curate a new educational turn with art and art education as its core.

The role of the artist educator

The Artist Educators is a creative activist who uses her/his creative and artistic practice to enable social changes. Artist educators can be of major importance to create new (non) institutional structures that make strategic/tactical interventions possible to construct infrastructures, processes, practices that support the idea of educators as agents of change  for equitable societies.

Envisaged results:

4 interdisciplinary seminars each year; 1 collective edited Book (Valiz 2022); grant applications; artistic research projects; further collaboration with several academic and non-academic partners.

Workplan and time schedule:

The group will work together for the next four years (2020-2024). Alongside the envisaged results, the group participants will collaborate to prepare expert meetings, reading groups, conferences and other events connected to the research group mission.
