Stamps Dean Gunalan Nadarajan is a featured speaker at the Arts Education for Tomorrow symposium, held October 6 - 7 in Hong Kong.
The symposium aims to document and synthesize arts education practice with regard to a key question: How does arts education respond to the needs of future social development? Hosted by the Hong Kong Art School, the symposium presents local and overseas speakers of different art disciplines to share practices and reflect on the opportunities and challenges in the field. By reviewing the landscape of current arts education, examining the role of the arts in contemporary society and investigating innovative approaches to arts education, the symposium consolidates key issues to stimulate thoughts on forward-looking recommendations.
Nadarajan’s talk, This, That and More: Toward an Interdisciplinary and Transmedia Art Education, is a part of the Pioneering Approaches in Arts Education panel.
