ECCITE, European Collaboration of Creative Institutes for Transition Education, an initative from Ernst-Litfaß-Schule (Berlin), and ELIA members Plymouth College of Art and the Royal Academy of Art The Hague invite registration for the MIND THE GAP Conference taking place on 7-9 October 2020 in Berlin.
The ‘Gap’ is ever present between school and further study, education and employment, academic and vocational across the European community. This event seeks to initiate an examination of these gaps and how creative education identifies, engages with and bridges these points of difference.
Mind The Gap! Comes at a time of significant change and upheaval in Europe how should and could creative learning respond to this?
This event will bring together representatives of creative organisations involved in education and learning at various levels from across Europe. Leaders, teachers, trainees are invited to participate in this inaugural event by ECCITE.
ECCITE seeks to bring together leaders, practitioners and educators whose focus is transition learning. This may be between school and higher education, between school and employment, between school & society, between vocational education and general education for the creative industries.
Through this network the purpose is to engage with education in the 21st century through knowledge exchange, development of international understanding and platform to collaborate on innovative & sustainable responses to issues identified.
We are grateful to the efforts of contributors and we all can expect very fruitful discussions.
The content of the conference will embrace all new insights and topics we are now facing in this time of crisis. We all experience more than ever the GAP’s and will discuss and exchange experiences about Creative Institutes in Transition Education in times like this.
You can register and propose workshops here.
The registration deadline is 30 May 2020.
