In a series of short interviews, we explore the thoughts various interested parties have on art experiences for young audiences. Our fifth interview is with Rúna Björg Gunnarsdóttir who works as a teacher at Laugarnesskóli primary school in Iceland, a partner in The WOW Experience.

Rúna is a teacher in all subjects, apart from arts and crafts, and teaches in grades 5 and 6. In this video interview you can hear her answers to the questions:

  1. What is your best memory from a concert or performing art experience? 
  2. Do you believe that art and culture are important for the development of children and young people? 
  3. Do you use professional art experiences in your efforts to reach academic or social goals for your pupils?
