4th UNESCO-UNITWIN Symposium - arts education

The 4th UNESCO-UNITWIN Symposium takes place in Seoul and online 24-26 May, on the theme: Arts Education in and through a Time of Crisis: How arts education can contribute to resolving today's challenges.

The 4th UNITWIN symposium seeks to discuss how the fundamentals and examples of art education can contribute in-depth to the social and cultural crises facing today's world under the theme "Arts Education in and through in a time of crisis"

The organisers invite participants to the symposium sharing outstanding cultural and artistic education examples and moves. Although the spread of infectious diseases around the world and the climate crisis, the role and value of art education are becoming more important.

As research in arts education has demonstrated the social value, impact, and role of arts education in various ways, we would like to gather artists and scholars to discuss how arts education principles and practices can contribute profoundly to resolving the social and cultural challenges facing today’s world.

Starting with 2021 International Arts Education Week and the 4th UNESCO-UNITWIN Symposium Pre-session, you can participate in international speakers' plenary sessions and academic symposiums covering a variety of topics.
