A music education project for professional orientation
The project allows young people to use methods of aesthetic research to investigate different workplaces. They will explore how their images of professional life differ from their actual experiences during the project. Through the project, they can use different tools and media e.g. to create sound collages that reflect different aspects of work in a sensory way. The youngsters will also interview workers and employees, investigate historical developments (from industry-based to service sector work) and take a critical look at aspects of health, work environments as well as social and communicative settings – e.g. which languages are used, what is the tone of conversation?
EDUCULT manages the organisation and technical support of the project. “Work::sounds” also draws on our experiences with Kultur.forscher! a project EDUCULT evaluated that uses aesthetic research at German schools.
