Cultural Literacy in Europe

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference -Mixed Audience


The objective of this panel was to present the work programme of the SIG ‘Cultural Literacy and Social Futures’ (CLSF). The programme was to involve a series of five workshops over two years run by a network of six universities: Lancaster, Kings London, Bath Spa, The Warsaw Academy of Sciences, Lødz, the Institut National des Langues et Cultures Orientales, Paris and a major International Gallery, Tate Liverpool. The programme’s objective was to promote cooperation between researchers and practitioners already engaged in the integration of cultural practice and social life in different areas of the arts: writing, filmmaking, music and performance and exhibition. An extended network of collaboration was established with cultural agencies and creative practitioners in four different centres in the UK and with schools in those areas. The panel consisted of an introduction to the CLSF project followed by four brief presentations by the individual regional coordinators, supported by recordings of live performance, film extracts, readings and images. These led on to a more general discussion of the way in which creative artefacts can best be integrated into educational curricula and their form and generation better understood as objects of research in terms of their relationship with their social environment. Equipment needed: on-line projection facilities with good audio Numbers of people/layout of space: open to discussion… if there is an equipped venue which lends itself to debate then this would be preferable to the traditional banked lecture theatre but the format is adaptable.
