International Symposium

An event in the context of the University of Hildesheim’s Certificate Course “Artistic Interventions in Cultural Education”, sponsored by Stiftung Mercator

Friday, 8th July – Saturday, 9th July 2022 at the University of Hildesheim / Main Campus and Cultural Campus at the Domain of Marienburg

The Symposium addresses artists who are active in the field of Cultural Education and other social contexts, academics, students and practitioners in the areas of Cultural Education and Cultural Mediation as well as representatives of cultural and education institutions and administration.


Art bears a special potential for Cultural Education processes. Experiencing artistic principles and processes can stimulate inquisitiveness, independent and unconventional thought and action as well as one’s self-perception and that of one’s environment among children, youths and adults, and it can enhance experiencing one’s self-effectiveness and sensitise people towards complex societal contexts. The International Symposium seeks to make accessible and discuss knowledge and insights regarding cultural and education policy programmes in various countries, illustrate the diversity of international perspectives on goals, potentials and impacts of artistic interventions in educational contexts and offer participants the opportunity to experience various artistic concepts and strategies for working in different social and educational contexts in practical workshops run by artists.
