Throughout the school year 2021-2022, a cultural education intervention “Stories. Through Sounds and Images” will be implemented in 12 Lithuanian schools. The project focuses on audiovisual, visual and sound artworks, their analysis and creation, thus developing skills in critical thinking, creativity, ethical and aesthetic responsibility, and mindfulness of the environment around us.
A cultural educational intervention is defined as the involvement of artists and creators in the formal education process. It is a targeted methodological approach to formal education and related issues, based on long-term cooperation between creators and schools, strengthening general competences and transforming formal education practices.
About the project
The project “Stories. Through Sounds and Images” aims to encourage teachers and upper secondary students to search for and discover creative ideas and stories in their everyday life, their immediate environment, and their relationship with the local community, and to look at art as a multidimensional cultural phenomenon analysed from the perspective of different educational subjects.
The project focuses on audiovisual, visual and sound artworks, their analysis and creation, developing both teachers’ and students’ critical thinking skills, creativity, cultural and communicative competences, fostering ethical and aesthetic responsibility for their own audiovisual, visual and sound works (particularly popular among young people) and encouraging a well-founded appreciation of the work of others. The project explores not only original art, but also popular culture phenomena, thus establishing a dialogue between the students’ leisure time and high culture.
