“This changed us – now we’re changing!”

At the symposium "This has changed us - now we are changing!" on 6 May, we entered into a critical exchange with cultural mediators and interested parties. At the beginning, experts like Caroline Culen (Kinderligateam), Irene Brickner (DerStandard), Sabir Ansari (BundesJugendVertretung), Robert Nocacko (MS Johann-Hoffmann-Platz) and Anna Larcher (Volkshilfe Österreich) gave inputs from their fields of work. Afterwards, everyone discussed together what effects crises, such as the Covid 19 pandemic and/or war, have on the lives of children and young people and what roles arts education plays in this. In particular, access, demands and benefits of arts education were critically questioned and possible solutions identified. The joint thinking and discussion on site and the relaxed get-together afterwards were a great enrichment and stimulation. We thank all those who took part in the exchange.
