 Learning Jam – on Artbased Initiatives
 We explore the theme of transformation by a specific form of applied theatre, called Process Drama. A case study about social challenges is interpreted through Professor Schiuma’s Arts Value Matrix, and the case and the theoretical framework are discussed critically: How can artists and researches through their professional competencies contribute in complex social challenges? The themes and parts are intertwined, or jammed, with you as an important player.

 Tones of the Learning Jam:

  • Learn about transformation via pre-text drama reflexivity. Experience process drama as a sensing and meaning making space of transformation!
    The session is run by Professor Allan Owens and Dr. Anne Pässilä.
  • Discuss the potential and future vision of artistic and creative competencies in arts-based workplace innovation. Gain new insights on what is going on in the field of creative industries in Europe. The topic is addressed together with Professor Clive Holtham.
  • Gain new insights on arts-based management, leadership and transformation with the arts. The topic is addressed together with Professor Giovanni Schiuma.
  • Discuss artistic identities in transformation. Learn about the tensions in the changing roles of the artist in relation to artistic interventions. The topic is addressed together with Dr Kai Lehikoinen.

The Learning Jam is an organic and co-creative process. We start at 10 am and continue until 6 pm. The idea is to live the day together flexibly and create various zones for various purposes: process drama, reflection, science and knowledge-building, and relaxation. All you need is to be there and open yourself to interaction, curiosity and courage. Lunch will be at your own cost.

Artbased Initiatives Learning Jam is run by Professor Allan Owen, Dr Anne Pässilä and Dr Kai Lehikoinen and resonates themes of Arts of Management and Organization, AoMO-conference.
