Roadtrip cultural education 2021

Roadtrip Cultural Education

Performing Facilitation

What does the cultural education facilitator have in common with a theater actor of a participatory performance? 
And how can methodologies of participatory art performances provide inspiration for cultural education projects with young people? These are the basic questions for the road trip event that will take place on September 15th in Destelheide.

To explore these questions together, let's first speak to 2 experts: Professor Sruti Bala and participatory artist Sarah John each give a keynote that reflects on the role of the facilitator. During the lectures, Bala and John zoom in on their own practice and on worldwide research on the theme, after which they also talk to each other.

The dialogue is followed by two parallel workshops by Keur Eskemm (FR) and The Young Coneys (UK) in which you interactively become acquainted with their practice.

Both workshops provide insight into the methodologies used in their work. Keur Eskemm's workshop builds on the LAP, Laboratoire Artistique Populaire project, in which young adults follow an artistic trajectory and cultural activities with pedagogical, cooperative and experimental dimensions.

The Young Coneys is a project by the London collective Coney, which creates interactive theatre, games and adventure. Toby Peach, who is the artistic director of the group, introduces you to the methodologies of The Young Coneys.

This road trip event is organized in the context of the Erasmus+ project Participatory Practice: Bridging Youth Work and Arts. The knowledge and expertise from the training event and seminar, which will take place in Destelheide as part of the Erasmus+ project at the beginning of September, will be made available further during the road trip event. For the elaboration of this program, Destelheide will collaborate with Elvira Crois (UA, VUB & Apaya) and Marieke Breyne (Apaya).
