LUCA wins grant to spearhead project about future of Art education

LUCA School of Arts has been awarded an Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance Grant - Art School Futures Labs 2045 (FAST45). The urge for innovation together with the need for creativity in current and future society brought together key players from Higher Art Education Institutes and Networks, Creative Industry, Business, and Enterprises. The aim of this Knowledge Alliance FAST45 is to imagine a futures perspective in which the participation, research, and education in the arts is playing a more important and integrated role.

Knowing that the world in 2045 will have been radically reshaped by many challenges, FAST45 collects knowledge, creates and tests methods for futures thinking, and broadly implements them in cross-disciplinary labs. These labs will facilitate students, educators, researchers, and employers in creative industry and business to discuss possible futures for art employment and higher art education.

FAST45 will compile all ideas in four scenarios and operationalize them in policy papers, long term collaborations and tools that will help to empower higher art education institutes to not only better anticipate an unknown future but actively shape it.

LUCA School of Arts will work closely together with other institutions for higher art education, enterprises, network alliances and government organisations.
