As art educators, we have accustomed fight for our survival in educational systems where often our job isn’t valued or resourced or both. We know (or, at least, we are taught to know) that we are needed in this world, perhaps now more than ever. However, it is also important to critically investigate how is this need for art and education constituted and what is the language we reside when defending our profession. This paper approaches this task through a philosophical framework in order to question why do we need to “foster humanity” today and what could this fostering mean besides its anthropocentric connotations.
