Conference: Cities and Urban Spaces - Chances for Cultural and Citizenship Education

/ 3 Minuten zu lesen

This year's NECE conference refered to radical changes in European cities: migration and mobility tend to undermine the cohesion in many urban societies. Many cities have become complicated entities in which ethnically, socially and culturally segregated communities have developed. Often, extended leeways for individual life designs and collective ways of living are often linked to growing disparity and conflicts of identity and self-assertion.

Developments within cities and in urban spaces provide a variety of starting points for new ways of cultural and citizenship education which are being discovered only slowly. Artistic and cultural ways of action and interventions may inform and activate the public, new participative ways of urban development may mobilise the citizens´ political and creative potential and support the voices of civil society. Which opportunities and tasks for cultural and citizenship education do result from these new forms and ways of action? May they lead to a reconsideration of previous assumptions and interventions in cultural and citizenship education?

The NECE conference in Trieste can be understood as a laboratory, think tank and project market for different disciplines, methodologies ("expert cultures") and practitioners, bringing together the variety of 'urban' discourses and practices in the cities of Europe in order to look for new approaches to cooperation and projects.

The conference language was English (without translation).
