    Scientific Program with the Major Theme

    Sustainable Art Education

    The theme of the congress challenges art educators and researchers to present, compare, and develop functions that support the goals of sustainable development through art. Sustainable development is understood as continuous and controlled societal change taking place at global, regional, local levels. Its aim is to secure good living possibilities for present and future generations.

    Traditionally, sustainable development has been connected with the environment and economy, but it also entails a strong social and cultural dimension. Art and education are changing at the national, regional, and global levels, which poses a challenge for art educators to check and update their views and practices and to develop art education that supports social wellbeing, equality, prevention of alienation, cultural interaction, and diversity.

    The congress sets a challenge to examine how the education of art, in pursuance of sustainable development, creates teaching and learning situations in which the sociocultural reality of local communities encounters wider cultural consciousness and deeper social observation. Thus, the congress breaks down the superimposition of the local, the glocal, and the global. It also explains how artistic activity becomes part of concrete and responsible interaction, reflection, dialogue, critical thinking, and change orientation.

    Sustainable development also requires an interdisciplinary, inter-artistic, and holistic approach. The congress encourages the participants to treat the theme from many perspectives and welcomes the representatives of various fields of science and art to examine and shed light on the relation of art education to the subsections of sustainable development, which are the following:

    * Ecological and environmental sustainable development
    * Social sustainable development
    * Cultural sustainable development
    * Economic sustainable development
