Aesthetic Communication

Aesthetic Communication is the CU vision that art has the capacity to open up for democratic and empathetic encounters which are inclusive and respectful.

Art can’t change the world but art can make the world felt. When engaging with art - seeing, touching and feeling art - this transformative experience might lead to the possibility of seeing things from new perspectives.

The CU program Applied Aesthetics is a way to open up for the new language of Aesthetic Communication where focus is on the empathetic dialogue instead of confrontation, and on response instead of subjugation


The Method

Applied aesthetics is our method of enhancing and

encouraging empathy and emotional intelligence.

These skills are essential to creativity.
