Generally, the diversity (of cultural expressions) is being embraced by many actors in the field of arts education and accepted as its basic principle. The educational goal of transcultural and intercultural learning is frequently pursued by arts educational practice. What does diversity-conscious arts education actually mean, and in how far is arts education really open to the manifold needs of various target groups?

The volume “Diversität in der Kulturellen Bildung” (Diversity in Arts Education) looks into these and similar aspects systematically and from various angles. Apart from general scientific perspectives, the anthology addresses findings and concerns from arts educational practice and resulting further training needs.
