Through the concept of participation, the congress “Art Education Participation” (Dresden, October 19–21, 2012), aims at pointing out the outstanding importance of art education for the young generation in a world characterized by cultural globalization and at increasing public awareness of this issue. The congress will be shaped by three key questions summing up the current conditions of art education:

  • Tradition – How can art education contribute to participating in cultural heritage and cultural communication?
  • Action – How can art education qualify for interaction with a (global) society characterized by heterogeneity and a high degree of mediatization?
  • Vision – How can art education prepare for the participation in a future society, a society that doesn’t exist yet?
