Saturday 5 August

Panellists: Dan van Holst Pellekaan (State Member for Stuart), Kylie Neagle (Education Officer AGSA)
Moderator: Helen Szuty

A panel discussion with Art Teachers, parents and students, artists and interested others in the audience bringing attention to the importance of visual art in the lives of young people.

EXHIBITION Launch 3.30pm

How does the work of art teachers speak for itself, given that they speak about art all day? How do they connect their personal pursuits with their daily routine? Not all art teachers are, or need to be artists, and not all artists need, or indeed want to teach art practice. Some teachers of the arts, while at the same time dedicated and innovative pedagogues, also find time to commit to personal practice.
