Special Interest Group for Advancing Anti-ableist Pedagogy

This is a new Special Interest Group will explore the relationship between disability and art education

Art education is acknowledged widely for its inclusive nature. Many of us experience the distinctive environment that the art room can provide. However, approaches to learning, teaching and assessment can reveal ableist assumptions that create barriers for disabled children and young people and devalue the creative capacities of the subject.

The Special Interest Group for Advancing Anti-ableist Pedagogy (AaP) will explore the relationship between disability and art education at curricular level in order to advance anti-ableist pedagogy.

Future meeting dates:

Tuesday 26th October 2021 (6pm-7pm): What does ableism mean in art education

Tuesday 16th November 2021 (6pm-7pm): What examples of anti-ableist pedagogies can we offer? (I)

Tuesday 7th December 2021 (6pm-7pm): What examples of anti-ableist pedagogies can we offer? (II)
