Korea Art Education Association and Seoul National University is holding a research conference entitled “Socially-Engaged Art Practice fostering Cultural Competencies” with the purpose of examining past and present issues and discourse on socially-engages art practices in visual art. The conference will include international and domestic scholars, regular school teachers, art educators, and administrators, all of whom are dedicated to the areas of visual art education and studio art. This conference represents an opportunity to engage in discourse with likeminded individuals and to forge relationships through art education. Domestic as well as international scholars will use their different perspectives to analyze the current reality of arts education in depth and to conceive of practical ideas and plans so that they may share and apply valuable research initiatives and examples within socially-engaged art practices fostering cultural competencies.
