On Thursday 24 November 2022, IAME and GMK jointly organised a webinar with the participation of Alexandre Le Voci Sayad, from Brazil. His Lecture “For a creative and unorthodox media education” was about how media education must address creativity, creating awareness for the risks, but also the opportunities of the contemporary. One such initiative entitled “City, Art and Media” proposes to understand how the city and the media can educate together with the classroom. So, the contemporary role of the educator becomes the role of a provocateur, mediator and conductor of this unorthodox form of media education.
The workshop was moderated by Ida Pöttinger, member of GMK and founding member of IAME.
