Arts and Culture for the 21st Century: Millennial Dis-Engagement Engagement - Re-Engagement

The Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing (EMCVPA) will host its 4th Biennial Arts Conference, October 11-13, 2017 under the theme “Arts and Culture for the 21st Century: Millennial Dis-Engagement Engagement - Re-Engagement“. The theme for this year’s conference comes against the background of the belief that the way forward for national, social and economic independence is through the arts and culture. The 2017 Conference aims to a) listen to what/where young people, within and beyond institutional walls, may be doing/going; b) provide a space where these ideas/issues can be encouraged; c) reflect on the implications of such a dialogue on/for current teaching/learning methodologies.
