THE PREMIERS TEACHING SCHOLARSHIPS

Vol. 33

The Premiers Teaching Scholarships are awarded to teachers across all systems and are for a five week study tour. The Premiers COFA Visual Arts Scholarship provides $15,000 for the recipient to conduct their study tour. The 2013 Gene Sherman Asian Art Scholarship was awarded to Jackie Boon, Newtown High School of the Performing Arts. The 2013 Premiers COFA Visual Arts Scholarship was awarded to Karen King, teacher at Caroline Chisholm College and a VADEA NSW Executive member. Below is an outline of Karens plans for the scholarship. Karens study investigates how collaborative interventions between artists, architects and communities have provided opportunities for re-engagement, renewal or regeneration in areas of social and cultural change. The five week study tour will visit Japan where Karen will look at two rural areas in Echigo Tsumari and the Seto Islands that have become important contemporary art sites which have regenerated these local communities. In Tokyo, Karen will also be meeting with artists and architects who have responded to the needs of those affected by the Tohuku earthquake and Tsunami through projects such as Archi+Aid. Karen will also travel to Paris to see the work of French/Australian architecture group Campement Urbain with marginalised communities in the Paris suburbs as well as look at the work of the Institute of Architectures schools program. Also in France, Karen will also study the impact of interventions by architects and artists in Marseilles developed within the 2013 European Capital of Culture program in sites and projects such as Friche de la Belle de Mai and Les Quartiers Creatifs. In England, Karen will meet with educators at the Tate Gallery London and Tate, Liverpool as well as educators with the Liverpool Biennal to look at their projects with schools and communities. Each of these sites provides different approaches to collaborative or participatory contemporary art practices and will provide models for developing visual arts programs in which students make and understand socially engaged art. Karen's proposed project grew out of her recent work in western Sydney based on the innovative Campement Urbain urban plan, Penrith of the Future/ The Future of Penrith. Other architecture and urban design projects such as the SuperSydney Project and her work as part of the team developing the Transforming the Local teaching resource with the NSW Architects Registration Board. Being awarded the scholarship is a great honour and it is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the culture of scholarly research that is the hallmark of NSW art education. The Premiers COFA Visual Arts Teaching Scholarship encourages Visual Arts teachers to be researchers and the work of past recipients is building an archive that redefines and enlivens interpretations of the syllabus as well as generating new approaches for art educators. Through my work in the classroom and in professional development work, I have been looking at potential for positive change for communities through active involvement in art and architectural interventions such as the urban design and landscape plans for Penrith or the Museum of Contemporary Art C3 West projects here in Western Sydney. I hope to look at programs run in schools and museums and local communities overseas that have promoted regeneration and renewal through art works, art events and architectural design. From the study, I hope to be able to bring back ideas for Visual Arts curriculum programs and project that would enable students to be Robyn Bannon, Lecturer Art Education COFA, Dr Kim informed and critical participants in their own local Snepvangers, Head, School of Art History and Art community.

INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY for EDUCATION through ART (InSEA) CONFERENCE 2014 The 2014 InSEA and National Visual Art Education conferences present VADEA NSW members with an excellent opportunity to showcase art education in NSW to national and international art educators. Both conferences are currently calling for abstracts and presentation proposals. Options for presenting are varied and offer you a range of opportunities to showcase your approaches to teaching and learning. We highly encourage members to showcase their work or team with other colleagues to develop a proposal. You could, for example: - report on a particularly successful program/series of programs - report on a collaborative visual arts project between your school and a local council and/or other schools - report on the influence of Terry Smith's (2013 VADEA: On Track keynote) ideas on contemporaneity (or another theorist or art historian) and how this has reframed your teaching of contemporary art - investigate how context influences your teaching practice, the content of your programming including the choice of frames and/or artists, and the effects on meaning in your students' artworks.
The possibilities are endless and the experience highly worthwhile.

Should the celebration of diversity be at the core of the visual arts in dealing with these challenges and opportunities? What are the implications for the way we teach and what we teach in schools and universities and for creative practice?
