About the Advocacy & Networking Board
About the Advocacy and Networking Board
InSEA has established active networks with national and international organisations. Through these networks, InSEA had been exchanging ideas and views as well as supporting art educators to enrich the quality of creative thinking.
Advocacy is an important area of activity for the Society.
InSEA makes continuous efforts to represent and advocate for, art teachers and educators at national and international levels. Conferences, Seminars, art projects and international events for arts education (for example the UNESCO Arts Education Week) around the world help ensure that InSEA members are visible, valued and connected.
The Networking & Advocacy board meets every 4 months, using video conferencing, to revise what has been done and to create and update plans for the future in line with the Strategic Plan of InSEA.
