Art School Futures Data Map

For the data map, the FAST45 team has conducted over 50 interviews with various stakeholders from different areas all over Europe. We talked with these stakeholders about the impactful roles of artists, art, and creative work in their field of expertise, current challenges and drivers, and the most prominent trends and developments. We also discussed their utopias and dystopias for our world in 25 years.

This in-depth qualitative interview data we have labelled with over 700 codes in the main categories of technology, arts educational practices, economy, sustainability, Institutes of Higher Arts Education, society, and politics. The labelled data enabled us to identify and analyze current practices, challenges, problems, and concrete future plans in each field.

We furthermore contextualized the interview data with literature and influential online resources relevant to futures thinking.

Explore the outcomes of our work in the form of different narratives, video essays, stakeholder interviews, a state-of-the-art bibliography and the recording of three inspirational webinars where experts discussed future relevant topics in Higher Arts Education.
