ACMWebinar: Reimagining Critical Spaces for Arts Education
Arts education programmes have been subject to multiple budget and infrastructural challenges across the world for the past few decades. This has been largely attributed to the indelible effect of market forces placing pressure on governments and educational institutions to prioritise subjects which deemed to have empirical industry-wide impact, while underestimating economic and social spillover effects emerging from arts education. Due to this, arts and creative subjects have been generally perceived as being inherently less essential to the evolution of contemporary society.

To address this debate, Arts Council Malta’s webinar will bring together international experts working in the sphere of arts education and critical pedagogy to discuss how the contemporary neoliberal rhetoric has impacted the legitimacy of arts and humanities subjects across all levels of education and how the rationale behind the argument of employability with regards to arts-based subjects is affecting the arts education infrastructure, and furthermore question the validity of assumptions that are taken for granted in curriculum development.
