To school or not to school
the position of art education today


Within this talk we examine today’s position and influence of higher art education in relation to the further development of a career in the performing arts. Does the value system of these institutions still correspond to the current practices in the field? Are the ways of teaching, the curriculum and the possibilities within still relevant to present expectations of the art field? Are these school programmes necessary to make the bridge to a professional career, and where does that position the autodidact within our sector? Through the voices of different guests, we try to look at these questions from a local to an international perspective.

At the table: Haider Al Timimi, Carolina Maciel de França, Tundé Adefioye, Ingrid Vranken, Loucka E. Fiagan and Krystel Khoury. The conversation is moderated by Julia Reist (Kunstenpunt).
