INSeA 2019 | Vancouver BC CANADA


The InSEA World Congress at UBC in Vancouver, Canada in July 2019 offers art educators an opportunity to theorize and practice ‘making’ in art education.  Through a diverse array of sessions, workshops and field experiences, delegates will be able to reimagine and reflect upon ‘making’ in art education. ‘Making’, after all, is concerned with material and immaterial approaches, global movements of ideas, anticipated changes, and perceptual shifts.  It is propositional in nature and not prescriptive.  Being provocative and/or evocative, ‘making’ entertains that which has yet to be understood.  Situating ‘making’ within Vancouver and Canada offers an opportunity to emphasize concepts such as emplacement, being out of place, and being of the place.  Moreover, UBC is on Musqueam First Nations unceded and ancestral territory.  At the intersection of Indigenous and multicultural perspectives, Vancouver becomes a meeting point for hybrid identities, experimental ideas and place-based consciousness as we prepare for the third decade in the 21st century.Congress Theme | Making: How is making understood across all dimensions of art education in the 21st century?

Congress Theme | Making - Place, Indigenize, Identity, Experiment

  • Congress Theme | Making: How is making understood across all dimensions of art education in the 21st century?

  • Congress Sub-Themes
    →  Place: How can place consciousness impact art education particularly in an era when migration, immigration and refugee status change our sense of location?
    →  Indigenize: What are the possibilities and implications for indigenizing art education in an inclusive learning context?
    →  Identity: How might we describe hybrid identities and rethink our practices as a result?
    →  Experiment: What relationships exist among artistic and pedagogical risks, failures, successes and stabilized/destabilized practices?





Located on the traditional unceded territory of the Musqueam people, UBC’s Vancouver campus is set at the edge of a peninsula overlooking the Strait of Georgia and the Salish Sea. The city of Vancouver is a short distance away and provides a sparkling backdrop for a university continually shaping its place as a world leader in research and teaching. From breathtaking ocean views to snow dusted mountaintops, world-renowned gardens and entertainment, the campus promises to welcome alumni and visitors at every step. Discover UBC for yourself and make your visit one to remember. Find out more.

For specific information on travel documents required to visit Canada from countries please visit the Government of Canada website by clicking the button link below.

Note: Canada introduced a new entry requirement, known as the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air.
