Enredadas 2018: art and social inclusion for the Week for Artistic Education promoted by UNESCO and InSEA

21- 27 may 2018

Enredadas is the International Art Project born in Spain in 2013 from an idea by Angeles Saura, UAM teacher - Autonomous University of Madrid, now directed internationally by the coordinator Katia Pangrazi. It is inspired by the potential of social networks that were the first to support the emergence of social relationship and dialogue.The project's detonator is the call to actively participate in the International Week for Artistic Education by UNESCO - United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - the last week of May. Enredadas avails itself of the prestigious support of the InSEA - International Society for Education through Art.The project takes shape in the annual launch of a Call to action asking to artists and school of arts to get involved about issues of universal relevance.

Art and Social Inclusion is the 2018 theme.

The main objective of this initiative is to sensitize the international community on the importance of Education to Art; to stimulate concrete projects, to report good teaching practices and to strengthen cooperation among the main actors in the sector, promoting cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and social cohesion.The simultaneous inauguration, both in real and virtual form, of all the exhibitions in May has been proposed to celebrate the Week for Artistic Education promoted by UNESCO.In this way a bridge has been created between two dimensions: the real and the virtual, in a context of collaborative work where the participating artist-teachers acquire multiple professional skills speaking of A.R.T.E. (ART RESOURCES TECHNOLOGY EMOTION), developing and participating in a certainly complex artistic project, in which communication is essential for its realization. The detonator of this project is, without a doubt, the call to participate in the International Week for Artistic Education that UNESCO promotes every year during the last week of May.

 

How does it work   Enredadas provides two forms of participation: 1)  teachers of art schools can propose Call inspired by the theme launched by the Organization and create a virtual participated gallery within the Esibit.com portal; 2)  artists of the world can choose among the many Call launched and participate in the creation of real animated artistic galleries, uploading their works within the selected Call galleries.The works selected by the Call promoters will be part of the Enredadas Exhibitions in the world, within the initiatives organized by each Project Coordinator during the International Week for Artistic Education by UNESCO. Enredadas gives life to the most dynamic exchange of art aimed at the collective sensitization in the world through a multiplier effect: artists act through art while the public dialogues with it by putting itself in listening to his messages.

Aims:

supporting knowledge through art; it also gives life to projects related to good teaching practices, strengthen cooperation between the main actors in the sector that promote cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and social cohesion.

At the national level, the Enredadas week, in addition to numerous exhibitions, includes artistic workshops, seminars, meetings, concerts and all those activities related to artistic education and the promotion of culture, especially among the youth groups.
