JACE invites contributions to its first Open Access Publication in 2018
 
For our next edition (Volume 12, No.1, 2018) we invite contributions that explore the landscape of artistic and creative education in 2018.
 
The UNESCO Seoul Agenda (2010) calls for “a concerted effort to realise the full potential of high quality arts education to positively renew educational systems, to achieve crucial social and cultural objectives, and ultimately to benefit children, youth and life-long learners of all ages” (p.2). With this agenda in mind, the Melbourne UNESCO Observatory of Arts Education and JACE Editors invite contributing authors to consider the discussions that emerge from this position and the landscape in which you practice. As the landscape continues to shift, grow, melt and be harvested, cut back, depleted, re-planted and to regrow - creative and artistic education finds itself in both a precarious position in some spaces, and more hopeful and sustainable sites of enrichment in others. This our first issue in Open Journal Systems (OJS), extends the concept and metaphor of the landscape in artistic and creative education to our colleagues and communities, and asks you to explore the emerging issues felt, realised and opened as a result of the UNESCO Seoul Agenda.
 
These concepts of the precarious, and the sustainable can be discussed through critical dialogue in visual and theoretical papers, conceptual and practice driven articles or advocacy essays that have a call to action or raise awareness of artistic and creative education in your social, environmental, political and cultural site.
