Art and learning are strongly linked. Research on creativity shows that Nobel laureates in Science have been more active in arts than their fellow scientists or the general public. On the other hand, consuming art helps us to maintain lifelong learning skills and makes us generally happier. This year, we want to call our community to share its ideas and help us to bring more art to Dare to Learn!
From the very beginning, Dare to Learn has been very much about inclusion and interaction. This shows in many ways at our main event but also in building it. Call for Proposals rose from the very thought to co-create with our community and now we want to expand this to art. We can’t wait to hear what you have in mind!
Based on studies in art, creativity and learning, Sitra listed five aspects that show how art and learning are positively linked. The last point on the list is how art affects organizational development. Here, one example shows well the potential of art-in-use in practice: A known medical center in Finland decided to develop its customer and work communities through theater. This resulted in their NPS rising to a globally significant level as well as improvements in the work community wellbeing.
But what does Open for Art mean in practice? To put it simply, we want to hear ideas to implement art in our festival in September. In other words, the basic idea is the same as with Call for Proposals but in the field of art. As with learning, we also believe art belongs to everyone - and everyone can do it! You can be an artist or not, the concept is what matters. Join us in changing the world through sharing the best artistic ideas!
While sharing your idea, make sure to think how to link it with the focus of the event Continuous Learning Beyond Degrees and the themes that are:
