The importance of InSEA for Brazil begins with the beautiful story of Herbert Read who was in Brazil and caused the installation of the first Art School for childrens in 1948 with Noêmia Varela and Augusto Rodrigues. Since then, with a World Congress in Rio de Janeiro and with the remarkable presence of Ana Mae Barbosa, InSEA has become an important reference and support in the struggles for teaching art in our country.There is still a lot to be done in relation to Brazil, Latin America and in interaction with CLEA so that we can establish greater exchanges and connections between our research and our struggles. Issues related to general education, art education, culture mediation and the training of educators are important points that could generate joint actions.
I believe that the Regional Congress in Chile can strengthen the presence of Latin America in the InSEA, with resonances at the next Congress organize by Ana Mae Barbosa in April 2019, of which I am part of the commission. I intend to expand the work just begun as a World Councilor for Latin America by establishing and deepening exchanges and research. In this sense, I hope to propose the formation of subgroups of work with specific focuses such as Educational Policies and National Curricula; History of Art Education in Latin America; Teacher Training in Art and Pedagogy; Cultural Mediation; etc.
