Art, Learning, and Social Change [Panel Discussion]


Saturday, November 15, 2014, 6:00pm to 8:00pm


The Urbano Project, 29 Germania Street, Boston MA (JP)

In this open conversation with leaders in the fields of arts and learning, we will uncover how it is that we learn with and through the arts and identify the ways in which arts learning is being applied to artistic practice and social change. The goal of this panel discussion is to have a robust conversation around contemporary ideas of arts learning.

Key Questions:

  • How do we learn with and through contemporary art, what does this look like and how is it facilitated?

  • In what ways has this type of learning played a role in social change? Where does this type of social change take place?

  • What are the ways in which artists are employing teaching, learning and/or education as media in contemporary artistic practice?
    • What are the larger understandings that we can reach by considering the relationship between contemporary art, learning and social change?
