Everyone who teaches the arts knows the concept: an assignment that is seemingly simple but which maximally challenges participants and students. These assignments are bold, unusual, contrary, funny, poetical, socially committed, or otherwise engaging. The almost 100 arts assignments collected in this book connect to the visual arts, performance, theatre, music, and design, but more importantly they encourage cross-disciplinarity. They reflect themes and ways of working in contemporary arts – opportunities to learn about ourselves, the arts, and the world. The assignments are intended for any context, from primary school and higher education, to at home or online.
