NAFAE is...

NAFAE offers a forum for the concerns and interests of Fine Art educators to be disseminated and heard.

As universities and FE institutions face the challenges of a significant reduction in government funding, together with rising tuition fees, the need to represent the collective voice of the sector is as crucial as it has ever been.

NAFAE AGM & Symposium:
45 Years of Fine Art Education: drawing the line?

March 31st 2014, 9.30 – 4.30pm
The Swedenborg Society, Bloomsbury, London.

This one day event offers a forum in which to discuss current key issues in Fine Art Education, and a chance to reflect upon the nature of the BA Hons Fine Art award and how it has altered since it’s introduction over 40 years ago.

The schedule includes an opening address by the Chair of NAFAE Professor Paul Haywood, the presentation of peer reviewed papers and open discussion sessions. A special guest edited volume of the Journal of Visual Arts Practice [JVAP] focusing on issues of teaching and learning will be aligned to this event and papers selected for presentation will be considered for inclusion in that volume.
