What it means to be an artisteducator
As a master's student at iMAE, you will not become an art teacher or a teacher of art. Instead, you will become an artisteducator. Your aim will be to challenge negative narratives of cultural difference, promote diversity, and address complex societal issues as a cultural worker.
As an artisteducator, your artistic work will focus on learning and meaning-making. This emphasis on learning and creating meaning will enable you to explore your identity and connect your passions to the current state of the world.
To co-create a new generation of artists who develop their skills, capacities and knowledge to enable sustainable social change.
Working with and for the community
The international Master Artist Educator is about ‘working with’; be this with your own community or with various groups and individuals in Site Specific Colleges. As a student, you are responsible for being open-minded and proactive and working professionally with anyone who requires your presence, whether in the public or private sector. You will work with artists, non-artists, teachers, students, NGOs, and policymakers. Upon graduation from iMAE, you become part of a global movement committed to redefining art education to meet the demands of our world better.
