Programmes, networks and institutions in Europe that support culture in education. Guide for policy-makers is an initiative aimed at substantiating policies that valorize culture’s potential in schools by mapping experiences across several European countries. These experiences are not necessarily models, but rather local solutions, dependant on the existing resources and the governance capacity at local, regional and national level. They require discussions and a tailored implementation in the Romanian context. Together, they reveal both the diversity of approaches, as well certain common trends. The last chapter is dedicated to the identification of similar concerns and trends in policy and programme design. A specific chapter is dedicated to Romania, with particular attention for those initiatives coming from the field of culture towards the school environment. Educational initiatives and culture’s place within schools are presented in Culture in school – Guide for artists and cultural operators (Botnariuc & Iacob, 2016), another product of Support culture in education Project, which completes the map of the collaboration potential with concrete suggestions for creating efficient partnerships.
The publication is part of the project Culture in education, project financed by the EEA grants 2009 – 2014, through the NGO Fund in Romania.
