Call for Presentations - International Children's Culture Forum 2019
Tampere, Finland 30.9.–1.10.2019
Is culture and arts education inclusive? How do we implement children’s cultural rights in Europe? What does the future of children’s culture and arts education look like?
We welcome innovative examples of policies, practices and research on children’s arts and culture. We are looking for presentations or short workshops that describe or analyse at least one of the conference themes. Presentations can focus on policy, practice or research. The length of the presentation is limited to 20 minutes.
Forum’s parallel sessions will focus on the following themes:
- Implementation of children’s cultural rights: art and culture belong to every child
- Inclusion in arts and culture education: arts and culture as a tool in reducing discrimination, increasing participation and improving equality in society - Creating inclusive and accessible art education for children with disabilities and with special needs.
- International co-operation in the field of children’s culture and arts and/or the role of children’s culture in European capitals of culture
The forum is organized by the Association of Finnish Children’s Cultural Centers in close co-operation with the City of Tampere, the Finnish Observatory of Art Education, The Association of Basic Education in the Arts and the Ministry of Education and Culture.
