Sinds 2011 organiseerde ArtWorlds jaarlijks de landelijke ZomerExpo: een veelzijdige kunsttentoonstelling in een museum, samengesteld door open inschrijving en anonieme keuze. Met ZomerExpo tonen we de actuele stand van zaken in de beeldende kunst, bevorderen het publieke gesprek daarover én bepleiten diverse invalshoeken om een werk te benaderen en beoordelen. De tentoonstelling ging in 2017 van het Gemeentemuseum Den Haag naar naar Museum de Fundatie en is sinds dat moment een biënnale.

De eerstkomende editie heeft de titel: Europa ZomerExpo 2019. De tentoonstelling vindt plaats in juni, juli en augustus 2019 in Museum de Fundatie op de locaties: Kasteel Het Nijenhuis, de tuinzaal en de beeldentuin in Heino. En Museum de Fundatie in het centrum van Zwolle.

In de aanloop naar Europa ZomerExpo 2019 willen we, naast de gemêleerde vakjury ook andere groepen, zoals leerlingen van UNESCO-scholen de gelegenheid bieden mee te kunnen kijken en kiezen voor de tentoonstelling. We ontwikkelen een programma op maat om (vertegenwoordigers van) specifieke publieksgroepen daarin te begeleiden.

UNESCO and its Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) have released a new publication entitled Ocean Literacy for All – A toolkit.
Ocean literacy is defined as the understanding of our influence on the ocean, and the ocean’s influence on us – including through regulating the Earth’s climate. It means that Ocean literacy is essential for everyone, no matter where we live!
Under ASPnet’s priorities ESD and GCED, and CLIMATE CHANGE in particular, this extraordinary toolkit can be useful for your schools and teachers, mainly at primary and secondary level.

Writing Peace: leren van elkaars taal in het basisonderwijs

Writing peace manual

“Writing Peace” is a manual that invites young audiences to discover contemporary writings by introducing them to a sample of them. Its goal is to make the world appear a little closer and a little more familiar. “Writing Peace” encourages children (aged 8 to 14) to become aware of the interdependence of cultures through familiarization with contemporary writing systems, their history, and their borrowings.

The manual contains 24 activity sheets. Each section presents the characters of a writing system, an introductory text and historical background, the word “peace” and the word “hello,” the language(s) attached to the system(s), and an activity whose answers appear at the end of manual.

6,000 years after the advent of writing, what do we know about others, their systems of thought, and the transcriptions of their writing systems? How can different writing systems contribute to a better understanding of the world and our place within it? By beginning to learn about these writings and their fascinating beauty, the manual connects children to diversity, thus opening their eyes to the concept of peace and our awareness of it.

Dear ASPnet National Coordinator,

I am writing to invite you and all your schools to participate in the celebration of the first International Day of Light that has been proclaimed at the 39th Session of the UNESCO General Conference. The purpose of this annual International Day is to enable global appreciation of the central role that light plays in our daily lives in so many different ways in areas of science, culture and development. Light is also a fascinating and inspiring topic in education, and we would like to encourage you to plan an activity or activities within your own country for the first ever International Day of Light on 16 May 2018.
