The symposium intertwining hi/stories of arts education took place in June 2018 in Zürich, Switzerland. The symposium invited students, art educators, researchers and cultural producers to reflect on the histories of education in and through art. 

Each day of the symposium started with a participatory activation of the Un/Chrono/Logical Timeline. Results of each session were documented and displayed in the space (→ some of the documentation is available here). During first two days of the symposium local guests and invited international members of the intertwining hi/stories cluster gave lectures on different subjects under the common theme «Arts Education and Coloniality». The lectures section was concluded by a panel discussion «Making Time for intertwining hi/stories in Swiss Arts Education». On the third day of the symposium the public was invited to challange gathered knowleges and hi/stories participating in a variety of open parcours workshop sessions with a common theme of «Travels And Tensions Of Critical Pedagogies».

Last two days of the symposium were dedicated to local students of Master in Arts Education. In the form of closed workshops students could explore more in-depth the recurring themes of the symposium and produce their own interpretations and conclusions in forms of collages, photographs, video recordings, poems, silk-screen prints and others.

For invited intertwining hi/stories members the symposium was an opportunity to try out drafts of their Learning Units. Finished Learning Units in a form of printable PDFs will be available to download free of charge from our website soon.
