SGIS ARTS TEACHER CONFERENCE 2022
This inaugural event - organised by SGIS Arts and hosted by ISBerne - brought together over 60 arts teachers from more than 30 international schools across Switzerland. It was an exciting and fruitful day of learning, sharing and discussion. A total of 16 workshops
were offered, facilitated by 16 participating teachers. It was wonderful not only to see such positive interactions throughout the day, but to hear of teachers' intent to maintain relationships and connections (re)established during the event. There is so much potential for continued growth and student/teacher collaboration amongst schools in SGIS.
SGIS ARTS LOGO COMPETITION - Results
The winners of the the SGIS Arts Logo Competition are Victoria (17) and Marie (17) from International School Rheintal. Their striking design was chosen by the SGIS Board, which made the following remarks: "We appreciated the movement incorporated in this logo, representing creative freedom. It is clean, light and fresh, with both SGIS and the Arts clearly communicated. This logo stood out as somewhat different from the others, with a nice dash of colour."
Victoria and Marie submitted the following rationale for their entry: "We created a logo for the SGIS website to introduce the new arts programme. This Logo design incorporates the elements of art which include drama, visual arts, dance and music through conceptual and visual forms. We created this logo by following the criteria and including our own creativity. Our logo consists mainly of shapes to portray a person surrounded by inspiration symbolizing a free-flowing spirit. We envisioned this as a representation of the art realm."
Many congratulations to Victoria and Marie, and thank you to all the students who took part in this event!
