A research design for children and young people’s encounters with art in school
With the Danish school reform in 2014, the open school was introduced, and as part of this initiative the schools are to open up to the community around them.
This means that the open school is a platform for the furthering of art as such and for creating opportunities for all children and young people to have encounters with the arts and to meet artists.
Consequently, the open school is also a platform for allowing versatile artistic processes and aesthetic learning to become an integral part of the lives of children and young people, and in the life and work at school.
The Danish Arts Foundation has established a panel of researchers to prepare a research design for children and young people’s encounters with art in the open school.
The research panel asks two overall research questions:
- Which effects, qualities and values will the encounter with art have for the various participants in the open school?
- In the light of this, how is it possible to evaluate effects, qualities and values of the encounters of children and young people with art in the open school?
