Education for the Performing Arts: A Review of Post Secondary Needs in Western Australia.
Western Australia Post Secondary Education Commission, Nedlands.
An inquiry concerning education for the performing arts in Western Australia that was undertaken by the Western Australian Post Secondary Education Commission is considered, as are the resulting recommendations. Attention is directed to differences between the performing arts and other education, existing educational provisions in Western Australia, programs in other states, perceived needs in Western Australia and possible courses of action, and characteristics of a college of the performing arts in Western Australia. It is recommended that a college of the performing arts be established. It is suggested that such a college might be developed by establishing a new autonomous institution, by modifying the role and function of an existing institution, or by creating a semi-autonomous body within an existing institution. The commission views the college as being highly decentralized, noncompetitive with existing institutions, and emphasizing nondegree courses. Additional recommendations are presented, as are information on institutions visited, developments in other states, and courses in other states. (SW)
