During the parallel session Challenging Times of the Valletta 2018 conference Living Cities, Liveable Spaces: Placemaking & Identity, Colleagues Pamela Baldacchino and Dr. Benna Chase gave insight of our ongoing research linked with the Deep Shelter Project at the Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre. Honoured to be part of this research.

Together with the other presentations during that session, it was an inspiring and rich morning at the conference. Thanks go also to Prof. Franco Bianchini for moderating it so well and to the conference committee for bringing such interesting papers together in this session.

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.
