The Hidden Curriculum:
Annual Symposium for Fine Art Educators, London 22 January 2016

The NAFAE steering group has taken a decision to move the date of the Hidden Curriculum symposium to Friday, January 22, 2016.
Deadline for submissions is extended to 31 October 2015.

It is becoming increasingly important for NAFAE that we increase our traditional schedule of seminar events over the year and find ways of complementing relevant and compatible networks active in our field. The Hidden Curriculum theme is one of the strands covered at this year's PARADOX conference in Poznan, Poland, on September 9 and 10, 2015. Our members are supportive of the European network for Fine Art Education. We are keen that contributors to the Paradox conference in September might also attend the NAFAE symposium in January.

NAFAE has had a good response to our call for papers and some excellent submissions. Our aim is to run a one day event that will encourage questions and debate. We would like contributors, participating in either of the PARADOX or NAFAE events, to develop their abstracts and presentations into full-papers that may then go forward for review and possible publication in the Journal for Visual Arts Practice.
