Arts, Creativity and Education Futures - 2019
2019 marks the start of what is envisaged as a six-year collaborative ‘deep dive’ into the area of arts, creativity and education futures as one of the key rights-based streams coming out of the Arts Front visioning for the future of culture and the arts in Australia. What are our shared visions for arts, creativity and education in 2030 and how do we go about turning our visions into realities?
- What is the potential of arts, creativity and education in Australia?
- How much of the national curriculum could be delivered through arts projects?
- How do we underpin this work with First Nations culture, arts and vision?
- How does it connect with international rights agreements - arts and education?
- What roles can new technologies play?
The 2019 Arts, Creativity and Education Futures program is a pilot stage of work designed to explore opportunities and build the relationships between the key partners. This will include building an understanding of how the program connects with and supports the MIC teaching program, educational practices and curriculum. The aim is to ensure that the arts projects add value to the work of the school and contribute to achieving its goals and vision, without adding extra work for teachers and students. The goal is for all projects to be integrated into the teaching schedules of the school and to provide subject options for MIC students.
The 2019 program will leverage the strong existing relationship between MIC and leading Sunshine Coast artists - in particular, Nicole Voevodin-Cash, Leah Barclay, Lyndon Davis and Brent Miller. It will include a series of projects in which the artists will work with students at MIC, supporting the Kabi Kabi move back on country and exploring a range of environmental, technological and human rights themes. As well as delivering on curriculum requirements, the projects will inform the Arts Front future visioning in the area of arts and education.
2019 Arts, Creativity and Education Futures pilot projects include:
The Arts, Creativity and Education Futures Summit will be hosted at MIC in August 2019 to share learnings, develop a shared vision for arts and education in 2030 and explore the concept of developing a National Research Centre for Arts, Creativity and Education as part of MIC’s emerging learning village. One of the responsibilities of MIC will be to work as part of each of the project teams and contribute to creating documentation and resources designed to enable other schools to do similar work.
