Short framework story about the nationwide project: Experiences and Expressions in the Now.

Birgitte Boelt, UC SYD.



Two perspectives on the importance of art

Louise Ejegod-Hansen, Head of Research, Centre for Cultural Evaluation, Aarhus University

In the presentation, Louise presents two different views on why children's encounter with the arts is important: an adult perspective and a child perspective. While the adult perspective is often also a bird's eye view, about the importance of art for society, about the formation and socialisation of children, the children's perspective is more here and now and situated in a child's life.
