About this Event

‘Post Pandemic Practice in Europe: re-learning, re-thinking & re-framing’ Implications for art teachers.

Join our first of a series of webinars as the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA) European Regional Council (ERC) members and invited guest art teachers reflect on the challenges facing art and design education across Europe. The long term and far reaching effects of the pandemic are only just starting to unfold as schools start to return. We would argue we need new approaches to address some of the inequalities appearing. InSEA and the ERC would like to bring art teachers together to ensure that they can play a leading and pivotal role in pushing for change. This is a moment where we must come together to ensure that art teachers are supported in dealing with change, and offer approaches to challenge established ways of working, thinking and being in schools.

The series has been designed to bring European art teachers together, to form an alliances and share good practice for art education. We hope to celebrate innovations and foster interconnectedness as well as move into the next phase of response and recovery.
