Do not miss the upcoming EPALE discussion on creativity and culture for social cohesion
On Wednesday, 7 December, from 10 am to 4 pm CET, EPALE will host an online discussion on creativity and culture for social cohesion.
The written discussion will be introduced by a live stream (10:00 to 10:40 am CET) with Rasha Shaaban (Gothenburg National Museums of World Culture), Helen O’Donoghue (Irish Museum of Modern Art) and Niels Righolt (Danish Centre for Arts & Interculture), who will share their perspectives, experiences and recommendations.
The live stream will be followed by a moderated written discussion, hosting the contributions of our EPALE community members.
Art and culture can be significant drivers and enablers of social cohesion, encouraging dialogue across cultures and supporting individual empowerment and democratic consciousness in adult learners.
During this online discussion, we will try to imagine together a future where arts and culture play a key role in solving global challenges (such as climate change, gender inequality, and corruption), unfolding the many interconnections between education, creativity and culture, touching upon the following questions:
In a moment where our democratic values are under threat, how can cultural practices foster inclusion and intercultural understanding, and bring together members of our European family house?
What’s the role of cultural practices and cultural institutions in promoting civic engagement and democratic participation?
What is the role of multidisciplinary cultural spaces in reimagining new ways of educating and learning?
How can we effectively shape inclusive and human-centred societies through lifelong learning?
