Vocational Training Programme for Art Makers and Cultural Producers from the Fields of Contemporary Dance, Theatre and Performance in the Rhine-Main Region (Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate)
Project Phase 1 | Jan. 2015 – Jan. 2016
Project Phase 2 | Apr. 2016 – Jun. 2017
The goal of this vocational training programme is to strengthen the position of art makers and cultural producers in their artistic work in educational contexts. The instructors are renowned and experienced artists and scholars working at the interface of art and education. The aim is not to make teachers out of artists, but rather to encourage them to develop methods based on art, to create a bridge into educational contexts through their artistic work. The vocational training provides the artists with inspiration to develop specific artistic approaches to educational contexts. The programme covers six full-day workshops and ends with a university certificate.
The vocational training programme is carried out by Tanzplattform Rhein-Main in cooperation with FLUX. Theater in Hessen unterwegs. Theater für Schulen and will be supervised by an academic team.
The project is part of the support programme „Förderung von Entwicklungs- und Erprobungsvorhaben zur pädagogischen Weiterbildung von Kunst- und Kulturschaffenden“ of the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung.
