• Book
  • Commissioned by UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Australia Council for the Arts, this is the first international analysis of arts education. Bamford also includes a comparison of case studies from over 60 countries.
  • The purpose of learning and teaching of the arts in schools is questioned by the author, where she identified the numerous educational, psychological, social, and cultural benefits of arts education.
  • By writing about the clear distinction between the ‘education in the arts’ and ‘education through the arts’, Bamford establishes internationally comparable standards for quality arts education.
  • Suitable for teachers, students, researchers, and policy makers who are interested in arts education with a global perspective.
