Anti-Racist Art Education Action (ARAEA) Group was set up in July 2020 to ensure that NSEAD, our subject and all who engage in it, are actively anti-racist – The ARAEA Group aim to audit, identify and help implement what actions are needed to achieve this.
All ARAEA members have contributed a combination of time, expertise and lived voice to create a suite of checklists to support members and partner organisations to be actively anti-racist.
The checklists, with a focus on Curriculum, Publications and School Resources, are intended to support art educators in being and becoming actively anti-racist. The checklists will be helpful for art educators across all phases, and for colleagues working in partner organisations and across the cultural sector.
The ARAEA checklists once published will be regularly reviewed. To help the ARAEA learn from and about your anti-racist practice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
NSEAD will be publishing all three checklists in the June 2021.
