WAAE 2016 Summit invitation letter final-1

Dear Arts Educators,
We are very glad to announce the 6th World Summit of the World Alliance for Arts Education and first world arts education summit to be held in China on December 3rd to 6th of 2016, co-hosted by UNESCO member organizations forming the World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE,) Beijing Board of Education (BBE), Ministry of Education (MOE) of China, and E-Platform International Science and Technology (EPI).
Arts Education for Sustainable Development is the theme of the summit. We aim to build
international partnerships that will support world-wide arts educator’s engagement in China. We also aim to advance the role of arts education within the 21st century. The focus of the summit aligns with the over-arching goals initiated by UNESCO for the post 2015 agenda.
This unique summit will profile arts education in China and also global arts education. The summit, supported by the Chinese Government, will provide a showcase for demonstrating and exchanging arts education pedagogies that promote public arts education. As an example, the summit will include academic presentations (in Chinese and English), classroom observations, school tours and a partnership day.
The summit will gather many leading k-12 schools and higher education institutes across China and member organizations of WAAE (InSEA, WDA, IDEA, ISME). The summit will be held in the prestigious arts school, Beijing Thirty Five High School or Beijing Normal University. Here, in Beijing, we will present Chinese traditional arts performances and teaching workshops profiling traditional and current pedagogies for engaging in arts education study and exchange. The Chinese government will invite China’s leading arts schools and institutes to participate in the summit with a vision for building partnerships with international participants
During the summit, the Beijing Arts Education for Sustainable Initiative will be drafted and signed, fostering a commitment to international collaboration.
