Towards Global Knowledge, Decolonization, and Preservation: Challenges and Opportunities Through Culture and Arts Education

08 February 2024

Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM) is honored to participate in the UNESCO World Conference on Culture and Arts Education 2024 with a virtual side event comprising four short presentations. Rooted in the understanding that information literacy is a fundamental pillar in education, these talks pivot around the notion of global knowledge as a foundation of culture and arts education. Tina Frühauf (Executive Director) opens the panel with a broader theoretical framework, followed by the second presentation in which Zdravko Blažeković (Executive Editor) takes Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM) as a model that underlines the importance of a global approach to information literacy. This is followed by a local perspective from Farah Zahra (Associate Editor), taking the case of Iraqi literature and knowledge as an example. The final presentation by MU Qian (Editor) highlights decolonization (understood here as an ongoing process) as an additional objective for the UNESCO Framework for Culture and Arts Education, taking the treatment of Uygur culture as a case in point. The panel will close with a Q&A session.
