Why do cultural institutions rethink relationships with their audiences? How can art be a force for social change, and why are diversity and inclusion so important? How can the public participate in the processes of art and knowledge production? How has an educational paradigm changed, and what does an educational turn in curating mean for art? The course includes lectures combined with interactive workshops, peer-to-peer exchange, and independent tasks.
How can we convey mediation and inclusion as concepts not only through the content but also through the design of the programme? The educational activities should be seen as a system of human relations, so that networking, exchange, and, thus, shared knowledge production might happen along the way. We see communication as the core part of the programme to ensure that the idea of meaningful participation drives the mediators’ interests and the realisation of the course at all levels.
The programme consists of four modules. Each module includes two lectures followed by the Q&A and discussion, and two local workshops followed by an online exchange.
