There is a long tradition of using art and culture in day care, and experience shows that meeting art and culture has a positive impact on children, their well-being and their communities. In the project LegeKunst we investigate if and how art and culture promote children's play and education.

But art and culture are not designed to promote an educational purpose, and play and education are also free activities that are not guided by anything external. So why does it seem to work so well when arts and culture meet the youngest? How can we evaluate when these encounters create quality in day care and when they do not? Does this meeting offer an example of how arts and culture can be socially useful? Should there be more focus on artistic skills in teacher training?

In the wake of Corona, special attention has been paid to children's well-being. Yet there are big differences in how children encounter arts and culture at school. In this debate, we ask how municipalities can qualify their visions for children's encounters with the arts and make it an active part of the municipal agenda? Do we need volunteers or municipal and national strategies? Can arts and culture help put new well-being on the agenda after the last year of closures?

The panel debate is presented in collaboration with Kulturprinsen and FOKUS - Forum for Arts and Culture in Schools.

Host: Anja Bo
Carsten Rasmussen, Mayor of Lejre Municipality
Kjeld Nørmark Thrane, Chairman of the Committee for Culture and Leisure Haderslev Municipality
Ulla Visbech, Head of Culture Esbjerg Municipality
Ole Priess, Headmaster Holstebro Municipality
Tine Agenskov, teacher and member of the Danish Teachers' Association
Tina Tarpgaard, choreographer and chair of the House Artists Committee of the Danish Arts Foundation
Anne Line Svelle, Children's Culture Coordinator, Aarhus Municipality and forperson for FABUK, the Association of Children and Youth Cultural Consultants in Denmark
