Serbia/ 8.3 Arts and cultural education  

8.3.5 Basic out-of-school arts and cultural education

Art education, outside of the school curriculum, is left up to municipal cultural institutions (houses of culture) or individual artists. They actively propose courses, workshops, and events etc., mostly paid for by the children and parents themselves. Most state art institutions do not have an arts education policy or department. In autumn 2002, The International Council of Museums (ICOM) organised a working group of museum educators to start working on project proposals to raise money for such programmes. However, within the system of cultural institutions, there is a network of children and youth cultural centres, inherited from the socialist period (e.g.Youth Theatre from Novi Sad, "BoškoBuhaTheatre" from Belgrade, Children's theatre from Subotica, etc.). Today they are making an effort to adapt their work, considering new forms and practices.
