In recent years, misinformation and disinformation have become front and center in people's lives, to the point that false or misleading information has itself been dubbed a virus, which is increasingly making it harder to even fight pandemics like Covid-19. But policy pronouncements and more accurate information or faster and faster internet speeds and better and better gadgets will not curb this problem. This is where arts education comes in. This session will consider how seeing the world through arts training can help us deal with mis- and disinformation. It will do so by examining how to evaluate information and how to deal with issues like 'stolen focus' as life-long students of the arts. In this age of information overload, coupled with fake news, observing our society through arts-inspired learning may well be what we need to make sense of our world.
