Artists moving and learning

09 July 2009

ENCATC launches new project website


Artists moving & learning analyses the impact of mobility of artists in Europe from an educational and Life Long Learning perspective. What are the effects of their cross-border movements – through festivals, national or international mobility schemes, membership in professional organizations; as bursaries in artists' residencies; or as guest artists in museums or galleries? And can these learning effects possibly be integrated into artistic education?

The result of the “Artists moving & learning” project will be a comparative study targeting policy-makers and educators in the cultural and artistic area. The study will be presented at an international conference in June 2010.

The project's research focuses on educational and Life Long Learning (LLL) - rather than social or artistic – issues. Do cross-border movements of artists generate Life Long Learning processes? Do they boost creativity and innovation? How do they affect learner-teacher dynamics? And can non-formal learning resulting from artistic mobility be formalized?

To examine these questions, the project partners conduct interviews with artists from the performing and visual arts in ten EU member states: Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, and the UK.

"Artists moving & learning" is led by ENCATC and coordinated by Mediana sprl. Further project partners are:

  • Fondazione ATER Formazione (Italy)

  • Universitad de la Iglesia de Deusto (Spain)
