Frankfurt Declaration for Arts Education

The UNESCO Seoul Agenda (2010) is a clear and demanding commitment to arts education which should be a guideline for every ministry of education, ministry of culture and other responsible parts of governments.

Aims and standards for such systems are given in Sustainable Development Goal No. 4, another standard for all countries in the world – and their governments.

Nearly 10 years after the Seoul Agenda IDEA and the WAAE hosted the Frankfurt/Germany “International Conference on cultural and arts education” October/November 2019: “Arts Education for everybody? Every student? Everywhere? What’s happened since Lisbon Road Map 2006 and Seoul Agenda 2020? – Evaluation and Planning a way forward!”

The Frankfurt Conference and the Declaration that came from the summit publically adressed UNESCO

It is a good moment to knock at the door after 10 years and ask, what has happened in this decade. That’s what civil society can do on an international level: We can address UNESCO and hope for “top-down-effects”: The declaration focused on key questions:
- UNESCO should ask all member states for evaluation reports about progress since 2010
- UNESCO should call for a new international AE-conference to discuss these reports
