What is happening to art school and arts education? The twentieth century saw a series of radical shifts in approaches to arts education and research that responded to a growing sense of crisis both in the purpose of art and design, performing arts education and, more broadly, the role of the arts in society. In the twenty-first century what has changed in approaches to radical, innovative arts education and research and what might such education and research look like for the future? Focusing on experimental forerunners as well as recent radical approaches to arts education today, the issue opens perspectives on future possibilities and directions for arts education.The issue includes contributions from Europe, the Americas and Asia on radical histories, politics and theories, new schools and initiatives, pedagogies and poetics of arts education.
