How do participation, belonging and togetherness produce new cultural and social activism? How and on what conditions can arts education cherish democracy, social justice, culture and sustainable lifestyle? Could arts education take a stronger role in awakening discussion on the wicked problems in society right now and in the future? Could it produce creative solutions as well?
