IDEAlaboratories is a programme for integrating contemporary art andeducation, which will take place during the Contemporary Art Triennial for School Students Eksperimenta! from 28th until 30th of April 2011, in Tallinn, Estonia.
IDEAlaboratories will consist of two parallel programmes, which will partly merge: a programme for the art educators and a programme for the school students in the age of 14 19. IDEAlaboratories will bring together art education experts, researchers, practitioners and school students.
We are looking for intriguing and inspiring presentations / workshops, which would lead to a better understanding of the essence of contemporary art and would contribute to integrating / translating contemporary art into the art teaching process. As we highly value in-depth presentations which interact with the audience, so we have planned the length of the presentations to be 45 60 minutes and the workshops 60 90 minutes.

Space will bring together the curators' interpretations about space from city space to image space, from geopolitics to psycho-geography, from more than a dozen countries.
