Laura Braspenning works as coordinator International Affairs and as artistic researcher at St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp (KdG). Her research interest is social design and focuses on its quality of stimulating intercultural dialogue and social cohesion. These aspects are also what drives her for the development of an ‘Eveningschool’ in which themes such as diversity and interculturalisation are dealt with cross-disciplinarily.
In the ‘InArtesproject’ Kirsten Roosendaal (researcher and writer) focuses on interculturality in the international art campus of The Royal Conservatoire Antwerp (AP). Students and teachers were interviewed to uncover some elementary discussion topics (for example diversity in arts, role models, gender issues, language issues and intercultural communication). These topics tempt us to explore the question how to realize the ideal learning community.
