The fifth international conference of the TICASS project is called PERSPECTIVES — Educational Aspects of Technologies of Imaging in the Perspective of Visual Literacy and will take place in Ústí nad Labem, CZ on 22 and 23 October 2020.


ABOUT THE FOCUS OF THE CONFERENCE

Offering important communication environments, visual technologies have large impact on many areas. They articulate new language of visual narration and multiple ways of visual symbols reading. The PERSPECTIVES conference focuses on the technology of imaging, visual literacy, educational aspects of art and culture, and the art approach to informal education. The conference will introduce various art education systems and concepts used at universities as well as bring information about the theoretical framework in visual communications.

It will touch the fields of art, humanities and social studies, and reflect on the visual literacy area, on education in connection with the contemporary technologies, and on strategies of imaging, thus offering a platform for sharing ideas, experience and skills in the fields of visual communication and the public space. Last but not least, the papers will highlight contemporary arts and creative processes. The open call of the conference lists the following framework topics:

  • Methods and approaches to art education, education and art practice, new trends in education;
    • Visual literacy in the era of image information;
      • Transformation of imaging technologies – through traditional concepts to new possibilities;
        • Collaboration in creative areas and the role of art in innovative education.

Established with the selected abstracts in mind, the three main panels of the conference reflect the essential topics announced within the open call — the modes of visual communication in art, education,
and visual literacy.
