This issue focuses on the following theme:

Arts and Pedagogy : story (s) of a reciprocitit’s engagée

Coordinated by Marie-Noëlle Antoine

(Doctor of educational sciences and independent researcher, France)

On March 1, 2011, Michel Serres, in a solemn session on “The new challenges of education” argued: Our institutions shine with a glow which resembles, today, that of the constellations which astrophysics once told us were dead oflong agos. Why have these novelties not happened?

Perhaps, because the institutions have not been able to forge deep links between the arts and education.

The pedagogy has a creativity imbued with great humility, so ample, that it is able to reintroduce emotion and affect in the relationship to capture the attention of learners, but also to allow them to learn with a greater efficiency.

What is the link between video, theater, myths or even music? The artists will answer that it is about art, the pedagogues, that it is about pedagogical practices. And both will be right. In recent years, we have seen the emergence of training practices that rely on the arts as a means of teaching, learning and professional training.

The arts are thus powerful mediating tools. They make it possible to say, to tell, to unveil with, without doubt, more finesse and symbolism than any other device.

An asset of the reciprocity between the arts and pedagogy is the metaphorical function of pedagogy through the arts. The metaphor, the symbolic language make it possible to take a certain distance from the situations encountered in the practices. We retain the things experienced much longer than the things heard.

There is therefore an educational concern to create and recreate an educational present.

There are educational spaces and times to grow, create, transform and return to our essence.

We live in an intense era of social and digital creations. One of the best tools to recognize them, to highlight them is storytelling: telling stories that, like parables and tales, help us to understand how to open ourselves again to the impossible while pushing the possible, to the possible. ‘invisible while cultivating the visible, to the extraordinary while clearing the ordinary.

Michel Serres concluded the solemn session on “The new challenges of education” by: ()everything has to be done again, no, since everything has to be done.

Yes, as far as the arts and pedagogy are concerned, everything still remains to be done, that is to say to create, to transform and to represent.

We invite researchers but also all teachers (preschool education, primary education, secondary education) and all artists interested in this issue of pedagogy in the service of the arts and the arts in the service of pedagogy to submit a proposal for a contribution (article or story) in one of the following axes:
