Lesson 7: European cultural policy and the socially engaged arts
Contributors: Sofia Lindström, Roger Blomgren, Jenny Johannisson, Merisa Martinez, Gustaf Nelhans, Wout Dillen – University of Boras
The social turn in the arts sector has led to a proliferation of interest in arts projects that have particular educational or political aims. This has not developed out of nowhere; rather, it is a progression that has been driven by globalization and the increased focus on alleviating or, at the very least, shedding light on social ills. In lesson 7, we will provide students, teachers, and professionals working in the arts and culture field with methodologies applicable when preparing a grant application, an evaluation of a subtopic within the field, and/or a research project related to the socially engaged arts.
