The Wicked Arts Assignments book
Wicked Arts Assignments - Practising Creativity in Contemporary Arts Education
Wicked Arts Assignments are bold, unusual, contrary, funny, poetical, inspiring, socially committed, or otherwise challenging. The almost hundred arts assignments collected in this book connect to the visual arts, performance, theatre, music and design, but more importantly: they encourage cross-disciplinarity. The assignments can be carried out in various contexts: from primary schools to higher education, from home to the (online) community, and from Bogotá to Istanbul. They are meant to spark the imagination of both teachers and students, contributing to new, topical educational and artistic practices. Besides the assignments, the book provides a theoretical view on arts assignments from historical, artistic and educational perspectives, complemented by interviews with experts in contemporary arts and education.
