  • Guimarães, Portugal

There will be opportunities for students to discuss their dissertation projects with fellow doctoral candidates and receive comments from prominent scholars in the field.

This Winter School has been planned and proposed by Network 29: Research on Arts Education of EERA.

The network Research on Arts Education focuses on the disciplinary discourses, politics, institutional and non-institutional practices of arts education at an international level with a special emphasis on European practices. The Network 29 aims to create an ongoing space of research seeking to create alternative narratives that are based on a reflexive and critical positioning regarding the potential of arts education in within the contexts of contemporaneity. It provides a forum for discussion and debate of current issues regarding the place and the role of arts in education considering its historical construction and field of possibilities. The network encourages papers/interventions/discussions that describe and provide theoretical frameworks for:

  1. The broad field of European policies on art education;
  2. Comparative and international studies in art education;
  3. Seeking for new narratives that take the European perspectives in confrontation with the concepts of difference and the Other;
  4. Partnerships between the school, museums, and cultural institutions;
  5. Relationships among contemporary artistic practices and their actors with the school;
  6. Research in higher arts education;
  7. Art education national curricula and their development at the micro-level of schools;
  8. Inscription of Visual Culture within Arts Education Research.
