Footnotes: Annotating the Present Condition of Arts Education

  • Welcome to the Footnotes gathering of 2045!

  • For more than twenty two years now, we have used the Footnotes function on this platform to discuss and organize around issues of arts education and beyond. Over time, many different conversations and threads have emerged ‘in between the lines’ and some have inspired the formation of working groups and in-person meetings. School of Commons is thrilled to host the physical gathering of 2045. This year with the participation of seven working groups, each exploring their own unique theme:

    DIS/CONTINUITIES, ORGANOLOGY, CHAOS/MOSIS, COMMONALITIES, RE/PROGRAMMING, SYMBIOSIS, and PLASTICITY.

    Carving out new pathways for arts education and zones to nurture common bodies of knowledge builds on the efforts of many generations. Therefore some of the working groups will be annotating video lectures from future archives of the past, others have invited remote speakers to speak from their preset local experience and give insights into their ways of working. During the conference the working groups will engage in translocal exchange and deepen the understanding of their own situated practices.

  • During the workshops, the groups will deepen the understanding of their research and practices, situating them both within their local environments and wider global developments. Carving out new pathways for arts education and zones to nurture common bodies of knowledge builds on the efforts of many generations. Therefore some of the working groups will be annotating video lectures from future archives of the past. Others have invited remote speakers to share experiences, provocations and reflections from their own contexts and conditions. The different streams of thought and reflection will be synthesized during the conference, where the working groups will engage in translocal exchange with each other and invited speakers.
