Arts Education Summit - A Day-long Conference

A one-day conference organized in collaboration with National Institute of Advanced Studies and The Teacher Foundation exploring the role of the Arts in the wider education. While focusing on the role of dance and Movement Arts education as a curricular or noncurricular activity in schools and colleges as well as providing dance services to the wider community, the seminar will bring in expertise, experience and perspectives from other allied disciplines. The summit will be attended by artistes from different disciplines such as dance, theatre, music, film and visual arts as well as thinkers and educationists to open up the discourse and include multiple disciplines and stake holders of the arts as well as education.
The Summit will examine the role of the body in education and the various ways to construct a positive and responsive body that can engage with contemporary life in a fuller way. It will explore ways in which an individual, particularly a student can be helped to embody knowledge so that he/she can be fully present in his/her body rather than shying away from it.
