‘The Old Is Dying’: on the future of creative education

Hastings Art School are hosting a talk/panel event as part of our upcoming show at ESPS ‘The Old is Dying’ on ‘The Future of Creative Education’. They already have a very exciting line-up shaping-up with various speakers and input from local (and not-so local) organisations, and it will be a really dynamic and exciting event. They are looking to diversify the voices and would love to hear from anyone involved in some way with local creative education who would like to be part of the discussion. Julia Kotziamani writes.

The aim of this event is to broaden the discussion about different models of community-based, creative education that are popping up around the country and explore what this will mean for the future of art schools, alternative options for great education, accessibility, community-based critical discourse and artistic development. The day will revolve around a series of panel talks, lectures and Q&As and they would love to invite you to participate. They are hoping to put together a wide-ranging event with lots of different models and ideas.

It’s no secret that there have been some serious shifts in how we access, engage with, and what we need from, creative education and discourse at a community level.

On Saturday 2 December, they will be hosting an afternoon/evening event discussing:

-what is going on within art institutions and why so many are struggling
-community-level interventions and how important conversations at this level are vital for overall critical discourse
-why things are on the verge of a seismic shift
-and our hopeful projections for the future
This event will be part of an exhibition showcasing some of the developments made by our programme artists and other local interventions around the topic of broadening accessibility to high-quality arts education.

About Hastings Art School 

Hastings Art School is an independent, artist-owned and led, artist development programme based in Hastings. HAS was set up earlier in the year to meet the needs of the local creative community where access to high-quality arts education was, for many, impractical, impossible or unappealing. They run part-time, unaccredited programmes for artists who are looking to develop their practice, and the surrounding discourse, without having to pay expensive fees, have specific qualifications, travel, or sacrifice work or family commitments. You can find out more at Hastings Art School.

Please let them know if you are interested in joining as part of the panel, by giving a talk, or contributing in some other way which would work best for you.
