Abstract

This book offers a broadly ranging contextual discourse on the forces that are shaping contemporary visual pedagogy in the Asian Region, discussing significant transformative drivers influencing recent shifts in visual art and design practice and education. It surveys a diverse and expansive range of innovative, educational and research initiatives by scholars working across the fields of art, education and design, identifying key socio cultural themes that frame research, their associated theoretical positions and practices. The reader will encounter voices articulating vivid histories through the lens of epoch spanning traditions of visual culture, policy developments influencing and shaping curriculum and evolutions in the cultural industries, and new methodologies for innovative outreach programs. We introduce this small but timely volume by highlighting its importance at a time when the role of education, and in particular, education in the context of creativity has arguably never been more important.
