The International Conference of Cultural Education will be held on 5-7 October 2018 at The M.Edelman Dialogue Center in Łódź. During the 3 days of the meeting, participants will have an opportunity to acquire specific, practical skills and knowledge about different methods of work in cultural education.
During the workshops and discussion groups they will also have the opportunity to get to know each other and exchange contacts and experiences, so that the community of pedagogues / instructors / organizers of cultural activities could operate more efficiently and have access to knowledge and tools. Workshops, speeches and discussion groups will be led by specially invited instructors from Poland and abroad.
Admission to speeches and discussion groups is free.
A BIT OF HISTORY:
In 2015 in Łódź, the Carnival Open Circus Space in Łódź in cooperation with SAN organized the first International Convention of Circus Pedagogy – Cyrkologia. The event was financed exclusively from the Foundation’s own resources and from participants’ contributions.
Thanks to the commitment and determination of the organizers, the event was successful – at the convention there appeared more than 100 people. During the 3 days the practical workshops with professional instructors from Poland, Germany, Great Britain and Canada took place as well as presentations, lectures and discussion groups.
Meetings, discussions and exchange of ideas resulted in, among others:
- Social Circus without Borders project realized in 2017-2018 as a part of the Visegrad Funds
- participation of the FMP to the European Youth Circus Organization (EYCO)
- the background of discussion about the creation of the Circus Pedagogues Network associating individuals and organizations operating within the development of circus pedagogy.
At the convention, there appeared a strong wish to organize an annual global meeting.
For various reasons, the creation of such a large event was not possible for three consecutive years. However, our determination and constant efforts in creating the meeting were rewarded with triple financing. Therefore, under a different name, but with the same goals, we come back to you with the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF CULTURAL EDUCATION.
