InSEA is one of the four arts education organisations that comprise WAAE - the World Alliance for Arts Education. The four are:
WAAE was formed in 2006, when UNESCO was holding the first world congress on arts education in Lisbon, Portugal. In preparation for that event, the presidents of InSEA, ISME and IDEA came together to write a response to the UNESCO Road Map on Arts Education. Later WDA joined enabling WAAE to cover art, music, drama and dance education.
This means that a member of InSEA is automatically also a member of WAAE.
WAAE is committed to working with UNESCO matters of interest whenever possible.
