In a series of short interviews, we explore the thoughts various interested parties have on art experiences for young audiences. Our fifth interview is with Rúna Björg Gunnarsdóttir who works as a teacher at Laugarnesskóli primary school in Iceland, a partner in The WOW Experience.
Rúna is a teacher in all subjects, apart from arts and crafts, and teaches in grades 5 and 6. In this video interview you can hear her answers to the questions:
- What is your best memory from a concert or performing art experience?
- Do you believe that art and culture are important for the development of children and young people?
- Do you use professional art experiences in your efforts to reach academic or social goals for your pupils?
