Artfutures: Working with Contradictions in Higher Arts Education
Edited by Kieran Corcoran, Carla Delfos and Jessica Maxwell
Published March 2014
Artfutures: Working with Contradictions in Higher Arts Education brings together leading arts practitioners, educators and thinkers, across 14 countries and a variety of disciplines, to address the most pressing issues in higher arts education from the perspective of those operating within the field.
These contributions cover a wide range of initiatives, from solving the complex problems of urbanity to plotting the future of the cultural ecosystem. In its exploration of diverse geographies, ArtFutures tackles issues such as the rise of the MFA in Europe alongside the need for an inclusive approach to the cultural and creative industries, centred on informal arts education, in Africa.
Together, these papers constitute a unique anthology which highlights the manifold iterations of higher arts education. ArtFutures demonstrates that the tension between these pluralities, together with mediating institutions like the European League of Institutes of the Arts, acts as a driving force in the development of the field.
