The Arts Education team support pro-active and collaborative approaches to research and research-led teaching. Our focus is on the nexus between practice and research and the power of arts-rich pedagogies and curricula across community settings and in the contexts of life-wide and lifelong learning.
The knowledge, skills, dispositions and capacities such as creativity developed through arts education are essential for the personal, social, community and working lives of all individuals. Our artistic and creative forms of scholarship and research inform and drive our continuously evolving courses, subjects and teaching approaches. We pursue ways of developing, supporting and fostering creativity in our students and across all educational systems – formal, non-formal and informal – through our engagement with the community.
