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.
