Sound art on the school timetable in eight central and western Jutland municipalities
The teaching project "Sound track" is rolled out to lots of school children in Struer, Holstebro, Herning, Ikast-Brande, Lemvig, Ringkjøbing-Skjern, Skive and Varde municipalities. It is clear with the new Culture Agreement 2021-2024 from the Ministry of Culture.
Sound tracks must form a breeding ground for working with art in general education. The project results in a teaching material that, among other things, contains a number of physical objects that can be used in the teaching, a written material and a digital audio library. The material and the way it is made together helps to anchor it in the schools and in the teaching. Thus, the goal is for the artistic approach to become an incorporated part of teaching in the future.
“With Lydspor, we must, together with students, teachers and artists, create teaching material that is targeted at the primary and lower secondary school's schooling. We need to use sound as a creative leg-span that strengthens the creative processes and innovative thinking. And we need to use the arts to strengthen curiosity and ingenuity and add special forms of thinking that benefit students both academically and for educational purposes. Because as Grundtvig said, the students must not only learn something, but they must also become someone, ”says art communicator at Sound Art Lab Isa Paludan Asboe, who is the lead on the project.
