EAEC2014 - The European Art Education Conference 2014
full name / name of organization:
The Cornaro Institute
EAEC2014 - The European Art Education Conference 2014 is a new conference organised by the Cornaro Institute in Larnaca, Cyprus and the historic Cyprus College of Art.
It is aimed that the conference will become an annual event, but this first conference is designed to set the parameters for the debate as to what art education is about, its historical roots and where it should be going. This will be within the context of how an annual conference like EAEC can help assist in the discussions around the current state, history and future of art education. Important to us is that this debate is led by artists within art education, and not only the managers and officials at the top of art education structures, making a EAEC a unique place in which artists who are also art educators are given a central role.
The event will take place at the Cornaro Institute, an arts and education centre located in the beautiful coastal town of Larnaca, on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. A field trip will also be organised to visit art education centres in universities and elsewhere in Cyprus, including non-formal art education locations.
Art education is in a state of flux. While on the one side there are dramatic changes in the funding structures for university level art education in some countries, in others there are new universities and colleges emerging offering higher level art education programmes. At the same time we see a resurgence in the number of institutions offering art education outside of the mainstream accreditation and validation systems.
Submission of Abstracts for Papers
If you are interested in giving a talk at the conference please submit a proposal for a paper. Standard papers are 30 minutes long.
The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2014, but earlier submission is recommended as a number of places are already allocated to speakers and remaining slots are limited. Speakers and non-speakers are charged a 100 euro attendance fee which also covers the field trip, but not accommodation or other travel. Students are charged 85 euro.
