Final Seminar — The Historicization of the Creative Child in Education (CREAT_ED)

The final seminar of the CREAT_ED Project will be held on the 26th and 27th of June 2023 in Porto, Portugal.

  • 26 June 2023 —
  • 27 June 2023
  • Porto

The seminar will present the results and online archive timeline produced within the project’s scope. The project tries to historicize the idea of the creative child in education through decolonial and governmentality approaches. Four lines organize the research and discussions:

1. The hopes and fears of creativity in education;
2. The child as a creative being within the child art movement and the fabrication of the “Other”;
3. The spaces and materialities in the making of the creative child;
4. The conceptualization of the mind as both programmed and creative, from the essentialism of calculation to the cybernetic discourse in the programming of creativity in education.

The participants will be limited so that we can engage in relational discussions around these topics. Through this form, we are opening five extra places for participants. Applications are open until the 31st of May. 

The persons selected will be contacted until the 1st of June. Participation is free (although we do not have funds for travel and accommodation). The lunch and coffee breaks will be offered during the two days of the Seminar. If you have any doubt, please be in touch through the email The detailed Programme will be announced in June.
