In partnership with AEC, ELIA initiated a new working group focusing on arts education in preschools and primary and secondary schools.
The group was originally brought together to create a paper for the members, containing relevant, comparative knowledge on teaching art in schools. In addition, as this topic is high on the agenda within Europe, following the declaration of the European Area of Education and Culture 2025, the working group also provided input to a joint advocacy action by ELIA and AEC. This was specifically related to the recommendations on key competences and Lifelong Learning developed by the Council of Europe.
The key intervention of the group was to call (successfully) for the inclusion of the ‘A’ in STEAM in this recommendation. The working group also hosted a consultative session for the members at the 2018 ELIA Biennial.
