Kaunas Artists’ House educational program aims to expand the boundaries of professional contemporary art by increasing its accessibility and by including harder-to-reach youth groups in the ranks of culture creators and consumers. The long-term goal of the program is to increase the social responsibility of culture and to promote synergy between cultural and social, educational work.
Through creative practices, this program aims to broaden horizons, empower and equip young people with skills and experiences that are not easily accessible to them in their daily lives. The contemporary art creators and curator of the program work with youth groups using a specially adapted methodology that combines contemporary creative thinking and rendering methods, alternative pedagogy and analysis of localized social issues.
The program is curated by cultural manager-educator Asta Volungė, contacts: Tel.: (8 37) 22 32 59, firstname.lastname@example.org
