This E-book is the first open source publication of InSEA . Thanks to the editors Isabel Moreno Montoro; Victor Cordoba and Ana Tirado de la Chica who generously shared their work with the other InSEA members. The book is a challenging collection of essays from authors from Spain; England; Greece , Caribbean and Latin American countries. The main topic is art and education for social transformation and the different authors approach the theme bringing up suggestions for actions in the society.
The book is built upon the idea that we need to insist and resist to the problematic issues of art education, specially now when the great majority of the western governments are reducing the role of arts education in the curriculum of public schools. According to the authors insisting in advocating for the need for arts education is not enough, there is a need to go forward and present activist situations , real actions of art in education to reach socio-political spaces ; non formal sites where the arts can play a reconstruction role for social well being and to promote critical awareness for active citizenship. The different chapters of the book bring up possible roads , mapping radical possibilities within institutional spaces.
