Great Partnerships - A How-To Guide: Arts and Education
I am passionate about exploring collaboration and creativity with young people. Great Partnerships was a resource I produced together with the arts and education team at Arts Victoria. It showcased and drew on a number of inspiring arts projects linked across almost every area of the curriculum. Below is an excerpt from the introduction:
Art is.. a question mark in the minds of those who want to know what's happening.
- Aaron Howard
A question mark is perhaps the perfect place to start. The question frames the answers. So we'll begin, as you might, by asking the right questions.
- What would an arts and education partnership look like?
- What might it achive?
- What will it take to make it worthwhile?
and the bigger qustion..
- Why partner at all?
This resource pack addresses all these questions and poses others to guide you through a rich arts and education partnership.
I was lead author on Great Partnerships. It has been released as a publication with DVD and as an online learning package. You can find the online version here: Great Partnershps Online Resource
