Three school classes, three cultural institutions, EDUCULT and partners from research and practice will deal with cultural competence as a cross-subject aesthetic field in school.
With its interdisciplinary and multi-perspective project team, the project is supposed to generate cutting-edge results. Besides pupils and teachers from three schools in Vienna, Lower Austria and Carinthia, a theatre, an opera house and a contemporary arts museum are part of the team. EDUCULT as the main research coordinator is supported by Dr. Isolde Malmberg (mdw – Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst) and other partners from research, school development and teacher training to ensure the dissemination of the project findings.
The project is split into four terms:
- Project preparation – Meeting the partners, clarifying the aims, planning the details
- Research training & cultural practice –three modules: What does a researcher do? What are the arts and culture? What is cultural competence?
- Cultural laboratories & research on cultural competences – active learning in arts and culture, individual projects and reflection
- Analysis and presentation – final analysis, presentation and dissemination
