The future of art education
Issue 39: 3 | September 2019

At a time of change across the arts in education, the diversification of media and models for cultural production and community engagement through the arts, this edition looks to new perspectives on art education across the school and university sectors. Case studies include alternative models in art education, open-access learning, community practice, models of knowledge dissemination and the expanded role of art education programming in museums and galleries.

Despite the development of an Australian national curriculum in the arts at a school level, few states have adopted this in its entirety, reflecting different philosophical positioning on what is of core importance in art education across the states and territories. As arts education continues to transform across the sectors, new and interesting art movements are arising through emergent public pedagogy projects, continuing to push the boundaries and purpose of arts education.

Editors: Bindi MacGill is a lecturer and researcher in arts education at the University of South Australia. Maria Bilske is a researcher, arts writer and visual arts educator.
