Centre for Arts, Culture, and Communication at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences presents the Digital Technology in Arts Education Conference

May 30 - June 1, 2017 in Bergen, Norway

The conference will be interdisciplinary, linking together arts and education, researchers, educators, and artists, for 3 days of research presentations, performances, and hands-on workshops.


Digital technology holds the potential to transform arts and education. Today, most cultural expressions are made using digital technology, which makes it easy to create transmedial artefacts, remediating and remixing existing material into new forms. Thus technology provides multiple meeting points between the various disciplines in arts education, like music, drama, literature, visual arts, media design, etc.

The aim of the conference is to bring together a multitude of voices and perspectives, and further encourage future development of this didactic field.

Topics include

  • Innovative Classroom Practices
  • Music, Literature and Arts Education with and through Technology
  • Making and Tinkering in Education
  • Informal and Community Arts Contexts
  • Collaborative Media Arts Practices
  • Creative Design Technologies.

Presentations take the form of

  • Paper presentation 
    (short format 10+10 minutes)
  • Interactive workshops 
    (90 minutes)
  • Artistic performances

Abstracts and proposals (up to 350 words) should be submitted in English.
