Arts Education – Sharing methods and practice. D.I.T. – Global Grand Central
17th May 2019 | 11:30 - 18:00
The D.I.T. is Subtopias Youth program. We build Do It Together based on three words: untamed, courageus and empathetic. Untamed – thoughts and ideas should be free. Courageus – stand up for yourself. Empathetic – we all belong.
D.I.T. brings together people and their different experiences, knowledge and cultural expressions. By meeting across borders: age limits, artistic boundaries, geographical boundaries, etc new expressions are born.
Based on 28 years of experience using art as tool to engage and empower youth, we wanted to share a living summary of all that work.
The workshop is part of TEH Arts Education Platform, one part of the FOI-project where knowledge and methods in working with arts edcuation is shared between members in the network through study visits, workshops and seminars. As you’re attending this workshop you will also get a short summary from the platforms seminar in Belfast in March 2019 by David Boyd from Beat Carnival.
In this workshop you will get a presentation D.I.T. and of the sharing plattform – Global Grand Central. You will also get first hand experience of some of the tools D.I.T. use to engage with youth.
