Arts for all?

The role of arts schools in current society

Arts4all meeting: Sunday, 8th November to Tuesday, 10th November 2015, Diest, BE
Pre-Opening: Saturday, 7th to Sunday 8th November 2015, Mons, European Capital of
Culture, BE
The last EU youth report has come to many positive results. The rate of youngsters
between 15 and 29 years who reached higher education degrees, for example
increased from 33.8% to 37.9%. Also are 82% taking part in social networks, 50%
are members of organisations, 25% are engaged in voluntary work. On the other
hand there are 13.7 Mio. youngsters in Europe who are neither in education nor in
work. The risk of being unemployed for youngsters with migration backgrounds,
health problems and lower education is 50% higher than it is for others in the same
ages. The report states that those youngsters are also participating less in politics,
culture and voluntary activities. It describes an increasing gap, which is connected
with the European crises. There are well- educated youngsters, taking part in society
on the one hand and on the other, there are young people with less chance to
participate and to live the life they want to. Those young people are threated to be
discriminated and marginalized.
Arts education strengthens the subject and helps children to find their own talents.
Arts schools and centers of creativity as part of the infrastructure of arts education in
Europe ensure cultural education for young people beside the formal school sectors.
The societal changes stated above influence questions of participation, accessibility,
educational goals, content, diversity politics, learning methods, cooperation partners
and digital strategies of arts schools. Remembering the UNESCO development goals
on arts education, we will ask, if our institutions are fit for contemporary challenges.
What frame conditions do we need to support the right to learn arts for and with
everybody on high levels of quality? What are good concepts and examples that
might be able to be models for other art schools in Europe?
The voluntary pre-opening meeting in Mons, capital of culture 2015 will be connected
with the youth exchange I is another, that had been developed within the Arts4all
network. Youngsters from Mons, Brugge, Riga, Aachen and Munster will present their
results after one week of art workshops. There will also be time to explore the Capital
of Culture together.
