Steering the Ark: A Cultural Center for Children
Drury, Martin
Teaching Artist Journal, v4 n3 p149-157 Jul 2006
In this article, the author reflects on his experience developing and running The Ark, a Cultural Center for Children in Dublin, Ireland. The author describes the practice and ten guiding principles behind the center. While acknowledging that arts education and arts practice for and with young people is a rich and varied landscape, within which a specialist arts center is only one feature, the author nonetheless believes that the ten principles may prove instructive for artists, teachers, and others involved in arts work for and with young people both in and out of school.
