virtual conference

About the conference

Arts and Community

The 2008 Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador established education as a public and essential good for expression of rights and as a condition to get a better lifestyle. This conception underpinned the higher education system reform (2010) and allowed the creation of the Universidad de las Artes (UArtes) in 2013.

UArtes understands public higher education in arts as a platform for collective work. UArtes also acknowledges the transformative potential of art education with/from/within the communities. In this way, we try to ensure quality education while generating relevant knowledge.

Community outreach programmes at UArtes consider education as a public resource. Following this line of thought, our programmes are seen as a responsibility and an effective participatory right of the university community in social transformation, which is nourished and strengthened from the processes of teaching and research.
