Art Monthly Event


What is the Future of Art Education? Part 2

Chaired by Patricia Bickers at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham

What is the Future of Art Education?

In response to demand, Art Monthly organised two public debates: one in London in September and one in Birmingham in October. At these events readers were given the opportunity to question educational professionals and policy makers.

The panels debated the motion: ‘Is further privatisation, corporatisation and instrumentalism inevitable or are there alternatives?’ and responded directly to the question ‘What is the Future of Art Education?’
