Children and the Arts: Developing Educational Partnerships between Pre-School, School and Tertiary Sectors
Meiners, Jeff; Schiller, Wendy; Orchard, Julie
Journal of In-service Education, v30 n3 p463-476 Sep 2004
This article describes a developing joint venture for Arts education in Adelaide, South Australia, from 2001 to 2003. The authors (two tertiary educators at the University of South Australia and a South Australian government education department Arts educator, seconded to a performing arts company) explain who the key stakeholders are and outline how the partnership stemmed from a common interest in young children, and their artistic development within and beyond conventional educational settings. The involvement of tertiary students as important project participants is explained and research initiatives within the projects are introduced. Three distinctive projects have emerged from the venture and each of these is rationalised with explanations of current and potential developments. Responses by the tertiary students and other project participants are reported with a consideration of the benefits and outcomes for each of the partners, and for Arts education in Australia.
