This seminar aims at enhancing the importance, and uniqueness of arts in decolonising knowledge.

Uniarts GINTL project logo with the words: pedagogy, power relations, arts, anti-racism, decolonialism, global community, research

The idea of decolonising knowledge is a central feature of collaborative partners and co-creating knowledge between the University of Arts and its partner institutions in East Africa (Tanzania).

The seminar is an invitation for the University of the Arts Helsinki community, especially for our teachers, researchers and students, to come together and (re)view our own practices and the possibilities, needs and aims for a more critical and inclusive curriculum and educational policies, structures, and relations.
