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.
This event is free to NAFAE members:
Individual membership: £30 (£20 for students & artists)
Institutional membership: £150
(Institutional membership includes 5 named members)

Education secretary Nicky Morgan has warned young people that choosing to study arts subjects at school could "hold them back for the rest of their lives".
The art critic Ruskin referred to the balance of art education as representing heart, head and hand. That might be referred to as attitude, aptitude and application in less emotive or poetic language. At the core of this sentiment is the idea that a person is seeking to grow and become effective in the world.
A response from Paul Haywood, NAFAE Chair.

Originally presented in March 2014 at the NAFE symposium
'45 Years of Fine Art Education: drawing the line?'
This text probably requires a kind of health warning or note of caution. I retired from teaching over five years ago and have had very little contact with fine art education since then. But this position, as a distanced onlooker, has provided me with a distinctive and unique opportunity to reflect on experiences and commentaries...
