Edda summer course – Human Rights and Visual Art Education

From 17th – 21st of August 2015 Human Rights and Visual Art Education was held at the Department of Arts Education at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík in collaboration with Edda Norden. 43 students from the Nordic and Baltic countries attended the course.

The course attention was on human rights education and the opportunities inherent in the arts and in art education to increase focus on human rights. Theories of human rights education, diverse ideas on art education and art events were examined, that all seek to raise awareness of human rights. The final results took the form of art works and events in public spaces.

Course leaders were Ásthildur Jónsdóttir, Susan Gollifer, Karsten Arvedsen, Helen Arov and Kirsten Skov.
