Cultural, creative and innovative skills are considered prerequisite for a free and democratic public in the Nordic cultural policy and educational practices. It is also recognized that creative processes and imagination are of great importance for economic and social growth as well as in knowledge creation.

2017 Academy will support these ideas through innovation thinking and through didactics focusing on the value of creativity and creative practices.

Likewise 2017 Academy will contribute to the re-conceptualization of learning spaces to further the development of the creativity and cultural understanding of children and youth. These activities are based in research and practices in Children’s Culture Studies at Aarhus University and VIA University College.

2017 Academy will facilitate discussions and sharing of knowledge about the potential as well as the measurement of creativity and aesthetics in both formal and non-formal learning. Focus will especially be on the value of non-formal learning found in for instance children’s and youth culture, in Danish Folks High Schools, in the Danish Production Schools, and in creator-mentor relations.

Co-creators in the Learning activity strand are local, regional and national cultural institutions and learning institutions. At European level: networks such as European Cultural Learning Association (ECLN)
