Cultural Animation – Philosophical Grounding and Practical Use
Dudová Anna, Kaplánek Michal , Macků Richard
The team of authors from the Department of Pedagogy at the Faculty of Theology, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, follow up on their article The Pluriform Phenomenon of Animation from 2011 and M. Kaplánek’s monograph Animation from 2013. While in their publications so far the authors strove rather to specify the concept of “animation” and present the individual lines of animation, this study deals primarily with so-called cultural animation which has become an educational method, and with its use in pedagogical practice. An example of using animation is the programme for animator formation employed by Salesians in Slovakia. This programme is realized within the Catholic Church, which is why this text emphasizes the theological foundations of animation.
