What is the Big Landscape?
The Big Landscape is a new art and design curriculum toolkit for all art and design educators who place learners and community at the heart of their planning. It is currently available as a poster (free with AD Issue 37) with the interactive website launched in late summer 2023.
The Big Landscape can be used as a handbook to help improve or rewrite your existing art, craft and design curriculum, leading to a fit-for-purpose, 21st- century curriculum.
