Arts Education Hub

Arts Education Hub (previously known as Arts Education Platform) is a place for Trans Europe Halles’ member centres to exchange knowledge, methods and expertise within the arts education field. The hub started as part of the larger Factories of Imagination project and was formed in 2017. From September 2020, the main activities of the hub will go under the SPOTing project.

Arts Education Hub is hosting yearly professional seminars on arts education topics. During these events the participants exchange knowledge of educational methods and share practical tips of their everyday work with each other.

The hub is open for TEH members with three or more years of experience within the field of arts education.

What has been done within the Arts Education Hub so far?

Gothenburg Seminar

The first seminar was held in Gothenburg, Sweden in March 2018. It was hosted by Röda Sten Konsthall. The aim of the seminar was to plan and structure future work of the hub, set the values and expectations and showcase the work done within the arts education field by the host.

Belfast Seminar

In March 2019 we hosted an Arts Education Hub seminar named ‘’Imagine, Create and Critique’’. It took place in Belfast, Ireland.

We have also organised a series of study visits, did the mappings of organisations working with the topic in Europe and ran workshops at TEH bi-annual meetings.
