Working together for art eduction in the city: Rotterdams CKV

TENT is actively involved in the development and professionalization of art education in the city. In close cooperation with other art institutions and teachers of Cultural and Artistic Education (CKV), TENT commits to involving high school students in art projects and to excite them for art in its broadest sense. In order to achieve this, TENT has joined the ‘Rotterdams CKV’: a collaborative project in which hundreds of specialists in cultural education have gathered in a professional learning community.

Working according to the unique model of the Rotterdams CKV, teachers and educators commit themselves to stimulating an urban approach to Cultural and Artistic Education for Rotterdam high schools. Every school gets linked to two cultural institutions and together they develop projects and a fitting curriculum, in which students are stimulated to think about and actively participate in art and culture. Some of these experiments from the school year 2016/17 are now being offered to other schools in the ‘Cultuurtraject Rotterdam’.

Another important objective of the Rotterdams CKV is to campaign for the branch. The goal is to get the government, school boards and others interested in cultural eduction and to make them want to invest more.

The KCR (Knowledge center for Cultural Eduction Rotterdam) functions as project manager and process supervisor for the meetings of Rotterdams CKV. This year, TENT together with MAAS Theater & Dans presents the cultural trajectory ‘Performance; art or theater?’.
