InSEA on SEA is an international congress for teachers, museum educators, curators and others involved in art education. The aim is to focus on and examine traditional and contemporary conditions of art education and their role in the development of knowledge in society. The aim is also to introduce to an international arena Finnish, Swedish and Estonian art education as well as to offer an opportunity to experience the sea, the archipelago and the culture of three countries.

The Congress has been planned and organised through a co-operation between theNational InSEA-Societies in Sweden, Finland and Estonia and InSEA members in Denmark. It will be a voyage between Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn. The Congress start with two first days in Stockholm the first of which is a research seminar. The next two days will be spent in Helsinki and the last two in Tallinn. Silja Line ferries will be used for travelling between the cities. Danish InSEA members take a special responsibility for the research seminar.


 

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?
How can art education contribute to communication between groups with different backgrounds and cultural experience, age, class and gender?

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

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.
