Meet on Art education

  The conference is part of the Kali-Kalisu project undertaken by IFA in partnership with the Goethe-Institut to empower school teachers.

Some of the key speakers and participants at the conference include Armoogum Parsuramen, Director of the UNESCO Office in New Delhi, and UNESCO Representative to India, Bhutan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka, eminent sociologist Shiv Visvanathan and Co-Director Centre for Learning Resources, Dr Gieve Patel. Evelin Hust, the Director of Goethe-Institut, Bangalore said “Arts education in schools has never received the priority it deserves.

We hope that the Arts Education Initiative will put on display a fresh canvas on which to chalk out a meaningful strategy to enhance the quality and effect of arts education in schools.” The initiative has already brought multi-pronged Arts Education workshops to about 500 teachers in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities of Karnataka such as Shimoga, Dharwad, Bidar, Gulbarga, Udipi, Coorg and Mandya.
