Future Visions of Arts Education, the Book

Posted by John Abodeely, Jul 06, 2009 1 comment

One dyanmo out of Harvard's grad school in arts education (where so many arts ed dynamo's first appear) has put together an honest-to-goodness book on the future of arts education--but he's just now looking for writers.

This is a fantastic place to envision a better arts education, a better education system through the arts, and--ultimately--a better education for America's students. Here's a short list of what I might write about in my chapter proposal:

  1. New media and arts education; teaching students already empowered as creators and cultural arbitors.
  2. The new, local Arts Education Politician; advancing arts education at the local level happens when someone steps up to interface with the adults who make the education decisions--and plays the role of a politician or leader for the issue of arts education.
  3. Other stuff I wrote about in another post.

What would you write about?

The call for chapters is listed below

20UNDER40: Re-Inventing the Arts and Arts Education for the 21st Century

Editor/Project Director: Edward P. Clapp, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Project Advisor: Eric Booth, The Juilliard School/Independent Arts Consultant

In light of the impending generational shift in leadership the field of the arts and arts education is about to experience, there has been much talk about the future: who will be our new leading arts thinkers, administrators, policymakers, and practitioners-and in what social, cultural, and political landscapes will these individuals operate? While there is great concern surrounding this matter, little is being done to provide a platform for tomorrow's leaders to share their ideas with the larger field.

The Technology in the Arts blog features a profile on START Mobile, the company helping the school to launch this project. START also works with other nonprofits and currently hosts 18 mobile art galleries.
