Workshop on the Creation of Art, Design and Technology Master Classes in the Arab States, 4 – 5 September 2004
 This workshop will specifically look into the modalities to develop art, design and technology teaching in the Arab States in cooperation with the Mediterranean Rim at the university level. It aims at promoting international and intercultural dialogue, exchange and cooperation in this field, still relatively limited in this geographical and cultural area. 

ars_electronica.gif Following the Declaration of Principles and Plan of Action of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS, Geneva, 2003), UNESCO is more than ever committed to promote human resources development in the use of ICTs in all stages of education.

This side-event is organized within the framework of the Ars Electronica 2004 Festival, conceived as an open platform for various disciplines in the field of digital media design, at the intersection of technology, art, science and society.

The workshop has two main goals:

  • To define the conceptual and practical aspects of art, design and technology education programmes today, be it in art, science, industry or mass communication, addressing the present and future needs of the various Arab States.
  • To initiate a network of educators around this initiative, willing to contribute, through a series of master classes, to the transmission of knowledge and the sharing of experience.
