IDENTIFYING AND CONNECTING DIVERSE CREATIVITIES IN ARTS PRACTICE AND ARTS-BASED RESEARCH

19 Nov 2018

Critical discourse in arts education are being effected by and offered new creativities, new ways of knowing, and new intra-actions which are fluid not fixed, urges us to rethink and revision the way we prepare to practice, to teach, to research those who teach and lead in a world of fast changing specialisms and diversities. However, while creativities research is an intrinsically pluralised human trait, it often seems to be resolutely trained out of learners through many current education systems and practices dominated by standardisation and teacher-proof approaches to teaching and learning. And yet there are still artists and arts educators and researchers who have found the keys to ignite, enliven, excite, risk-take and foster wonderment and epiphany in their classrooms and learning context through locating arts-based creativities as central to learning experiences.
