Themes of the congress
Art teachers are innovators in the Art classroom, in the schools and in museums, in local communities and society. InSEA ON SEA is a forum for presenting ideas and projects of how to initiate change - how do we make waves.
DIALOGUE ACROSS DIFFERENCE - Are we all in the same boat?
SEASCAPES - The sea as a source and resource in art and culture. What are the ideas and myths in which the sea is a theme? How does the ecology of the sea figure in contemporary life and culture? When is it a threat? When is it a resource?
BRIDGES TO THE PAST - Cultural heritage today. Whose past, whose art, whose history, whose traditions are performed or made visible through the work of art education? Whose past and traditions is ignored or made invisible? The politics of cultural heritage is an important topic on the agendas of many governments today. How can art education become engaged in this process?
RIDING OUT THE STORM - Today images are often at the centre of major debates and conflicts. These debates, sometimes in the form of "moral panics", present problems to deal with in art education.

Make it simple. Changing several times during the conference from
cabins to hotel rooms mean that you need to make it simple. Try to get
rid of the stuff you usually carry with you, but do not actually need. At the
same time you can eliminate old ossified thoughts and try to rethink and
reframe your approach to visual arts education.
