Region: Europe

I am half German and half Italian, living and working in Austria - an international perspective is one of my main motivations to shape my own point of view. I want to support the art/s education community with my exchange/mobility experiences in different countries like Finnland, Chile, United States, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Spain. It's about questioning procedures, systems, and beliefs to offer the future generation of art lovers and professional teachers tools to explore the potential of art/s. InSEA incorporates a tradition of a respectful discourse for future problems in the education system. I want to stand up for an education in art/s based on profound research, teaching, and learning from each other.
Let's dedicate our power together for art/s and people around the world!
