World Alliance for Arts Education - Survey on Culture and Arts Education

This online survey aims to seek the views of educators in culture and arts education. It was designed by the World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE), in consultation with UNESCO. The World Alliance for Arts Education is a network of four organizations: International Drama/Theatre and Education Association (IDEA), International Society for Education through Art (InSEA), International Society for Music Education (ISME) and World Dance Alliance (WDA).


Culture and arts education take on complex meanings to different people worldwide. Convinced  that culture and arts education, in its diversity, shape a more sustainable and peaceful future for people and the planet, we are asking professionals working in culture and arts education to help us identify the current and near future challenges and needs of teachers and educators, cultural and social workers, artists, as well as community organizers around the world who are often at the frontline of addressing the shifting priorities and challenges in this field.

The results of this questionnaire will contribute to the global consultation process to develop a UNESCO Framework for Culture and Arts Education. The development of the UNESCO Framework  responds to the call by Member States in 2021 to update guidance to address current trends, issues and priorities in culture and arts education, as well as factoring in a broader understanding of culture that has emerged in recent years, including heritage, the cultural and creative industries, and the influence of digital technologies.

The 20-minute online survey comprises a series of 18 questions. The survey is being distributed through relevant networks of the WAAE and UNESCO. Participation is voluntary and the data collected is anonymous. If you wish to participate in this study, survey completion will represent consent.
