Journal of Festival Culture Inquiry and Analysis, Education Special.

FCRE is committed to developing an understanding of how festival culture impacts education at all levels, all ages, all over the world. We view education as a meaningful vehicle for the transmission of culture. For this reason, it is crucial to investigate and educate on how festival culture has changed or sustained education practice.


We recognise that students and teachers bring a variety of valuable cultural experiences and knowledge into the classroom and this can enhance pedagogy and learning. While we must acknowledge that formal education does not take place in a vacuum, we must also recognise that the majority of learning takes place outside of the classroom. We appreciate that there is a symbiotic relationship between festival culture and education, and our exploration of this relationship benefits both of these concepts. 

We welcome personal narratives or autoethnographic work, original research papers and reviews,  theoretically informed and empirically grounded. In this education special we focus on Festival Culture and Education, including but not limited to:

How festival culture has impacted education systems, curriculum, and education policy

How festival culture has permeated various elements of society (i.e. media, music, events and activities), and how these channels form educational tools for the society

Festival culture and Learning and Teaching for educators

Festival culture, leadership and succession planning

Formal, informal and non-formal learning and teaching processes and practices in festival culture
