So glad to see this …

Screenshot 2019-04-28 at 09.21.13In 2017 I had the pleasure to work with the great team of the Erasmus Hogeschool (EhB)  – Department of Design and Technology  – in Brussels on a new curriculum called Digital Design & Development. Design Thinking is at its core. The course trains young people to become critical digital experience designers and is completely based on project-based learning, combining play, creativity, technology, human-centred design, societal challenges and art.  It is so nice to see now that this is actually happening and that the gender balance is getting in the right direction, because technology is not just a male thing 😉

Lecture on Arts Education for the MRER

18 Dec

AECSim

The lecture was part of the MRER (Malta Review of Educational Research) Lecture Series in collaboration with Edukarti (Art Education organisation based at Department of Arts, Open Communities and Adult Education, Faculty of Education, University of Malta). It focused on the role of Arts Educators in a changing society and their influence on Higher Arts Education.  This is in fact a topic that continuously offers debate between arts educators and art practitioners. Artists are becoming educators, facilitators, researchers and inspirers not just in schools but also in socio-cultural, business and community settings. So which challenges lie ahead of us as lecturers and what implications do these challenges have on the training of Arts Educators as we prepare them for these new roles?

The topic is analysed starting from this year’s winner of the Turner prize since for me this nicely sums up what it is about. From there the reflections tapped into my  own challenges and experiences in higher arts education over the last couple of years.

Op vier december opende in de Leuvense Universiteitsbibliotheek de expo ‘The Prélude Pathétique’. Tijdens de tentoonstelling geven 27 kunstenaars hun visie op het eeuwenoude thema van de transfiguratie. Deze tentoonstelling is de eerste editie van een reeks activiteiten waarmee LUCA School of Arts een platform wil creëren voor haar eigen jonge talent én haar gevestigde waarden; niet enkel Luc Tuymans en Michaël Borremans, maar ook Philippe Van Snick, Dan Van Severen, Herman Asselberghs, David Claerbout en vele anderen krijgen een plaats in deze expo.

De expo loopt nog tot 31/1 en maakt van het bezoeken van de bibliotheek een bijzondere ervaring. Mocht je in de buurt zijn, zeker binnenlopen!
