The conference will provide an opportunity to learn about the latest Hungarian and international educational programs and research results in art education and teaching.
The conference will begin on June 14 at the University of Fine Arts, where the newly founded Árpád Szabados Senior Art Education Prize will be awarded. Árpád Szabados was not only an artist with a significant oeuvre, but also an outstanding art educator. During his rectorship, the Academy of Fine Arts became the University of Fine Arts, but he also founded and led the renowned Children and Youth Art Workshop (GYÍK Workshop) and the children’s art show, Hétszínvilág, which was previously broadcast on Hungarian Television.
On the opening day, the creative staff of the University of Fine Arts will welcome conference participants with workshops, art demonstrations, exhibitions, building and workshop tours, followed by scientific plenary and session lectures on June 15 and 16 at the Vigadó Concert Hall.
The main themes of the conference this year will include the impact of talent development programs on young people, the latest art therapy programs, art education responses to social problems, the relationship of science and technology to art education, and new research in children and youth culture.
The academic meeting is jointly organized by the Hungarian University of Fine Arts and the Hungarian Academy of Arts, and several faculties of Eötvös Loránd University.
