Art Education Advocacy and Policy Development
The following two position papers have been written by the Tertiary Art Education Group of Victoria (TAEV), a sub-group of Art Education Victoria (AEV) for the purpose of art education advocacy.
The papers have been endorsed by the Australian Council of University Art and Design Schools (ACUADS), the Executive of the Australian Institute of Art Education (AIAE) and the Council of Art Education Victoria (AEV).
Available in the AEV members' area, they are published here for art teachers and other educators to use for art education advocacy and policy development within schools, regions and beyond. Copying of the papers is permitted for these educational purposes as long as acknowledgement of the authoring group is included.
Access these two resources in the AEV Members' Area.
