This is a closed session for the Spaces of Transformation in Arts Education (SPOTing) consortium. SPOTing is led by TEH and co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The project consists of a consortium with 8 TEH members from Sweden, Italy, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Slovakia, France and Austria + TEH. Many of TEH’s members conduct cultural educational activities of various kinds, and the purpose of the project is to stimulate professional development and knowledge transfer between the cultural educators. The goal is to strengthen the participating of cultural educators in their profession and to critically reflect on methods and working methods for developing and strengthening cultural pedagogy as a field internationally. The project consists of annual seminars and test beds that are carried out at each cultural centre. A researcher will follow the project and the results will be presented in the form of case studies.

This DISCE Co-creation Lab will examine public space, both conceptual and physical, and its importance in providing citizens with an accessible and safe place where they can explore their ideas, concepts, creativity and ambitions. Creating such public space is an opportunity to engage people in investing and building a shared future in ways that enable societal development through collective empowerment and responsibility. This concept of public space can include cultural centres, city planning, individual and community development and inclusive practices. For it to work there needs to be trust and positive relationships between all potential stakeholders: decision and policy makers, initiators and users. The proposition is that in these times, working together for a shared outcome is the only way to address the major challenges humanity is facing.

Speakers: Jonathan Gross (Keynote, UK), Mišo Hudák (East Coast, SK), Francesco Campagnari (University of Venice, IT), Representative of Nová Cvernovka SK…
