An Arts Education imperative: New directions for sustainability

Published on by KATHRYN COLEMAN
The arts provide education possibilities to transform personal, social and cultural dimensions. It is essential we interrogate the positive outcomes of arts rich experiences as we strive to create a more sustainable way of living amidst a growing recognition of systemic inequities and the need for change. This project will build capacities of both early and mid-career academics at MGSE while strengthening an existing global network of arts scholars. MGSE Arts Education staff are partners within the UNITWIN/UNESCO program of twelve institutions across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Pacific and senior academics/researchers across art forms. This Arts Education Think Tank creates a space to collaborate and engage in global and interdisciplinary action and research initiatives to address significant social, cultural and sustainability issues via meaningful engagement in arts and education. The project will capitalize on the group’s existing research drawing together current work in the following imperatives: • Decolonisation • Cultural resilience • Inclusion, agency, and wellbeing • The Post-digital age These have emerged from diverse geographic and cultural contexts and present a timely priority for arts education. This project will develop a foundation for generating international and national grant applications that will propel new directions for arts education. Project OMEKA site:
