Call for sessions

European Conference on cultural education and participation
17 – 20 October 2018, Leeuwarden-Friesland, NL (European Capital of Culture 2018)

Arts and culture are key factors for building a sustainable Europe, that is now facing growing diversity and polarisation. This international conference investigates how cultural education and cultural participation relate to challenges of access, social cohesion, heritage and cooperation. How can we best channel our research and policies to promote an open, inclusive, resilient European society?

The conference organisers ask researchers, practitioners, educators and policy-makers to submit topics for sessions on one of the four themes chosen for the conference. The basis for each session is research, policy and / or practice.

The themes are:

  • Access for everyone in a diverse Europe,
  • Arts & culture for social challenges,
  • Arts, culture, heritage and identity &
  • European co-operation.

Through these themes, together with the key note speeches, the conference will explore the role of cultural education and participation in a changing Europe.

Deadline: Tuesday 13 February 2018
