On the 28th of January 2022, Stimmuli for Social Change participated in the international #LearningPlanet Festival at the Session ‘Activating Arts in Education’. Along with exceptional co-speakers Eric Booth, USA (International Teaching Artist Collaborative), Jelena Soldo, Bosnia Herzegovina (ALTTEATAR), Louise Catry-Bossis, India (Slam Out Loud), Dave Strudwick, Hungary (Real School Budapest) and the amazing hosts Csaba Manyai and Anis Barnat from Community Arts Network, we had the chance to share our practices, visions and solutions on empowering the Arts’ presence in Education.
Konstantina Karameri from Stimmuli team presented her work and projects related to the future of education with focus on Social Innovation Education. She advocates for more involvement of creative professionals to achieve the change of mindsets with long-lasting impact. Creativity and artistic applications through our cross-disciplinary approaches are reflected in many of her projects presented at the #LP Festival among which also Social Radio 2.0– radio broadcasting and podcasting for active citizenship.
It was an exciting and inspiring discussion with international participants from the arts and education sectors, resulting to a future-steps conversation. There is an urgency for resilience at all levels and the Culture and Creative Sectors need to re-establish their position, to reclaim their value and all stakeholders are called to keep their mind and dialogue open!
