Articles and Journals

Special Issue: Decolonization of Arts Education, Volume 20, Number 1, April 2021

Guest editor Dr. Dori Tunstall, Dean of the Faculty of Design, Ontario College of Art and Design University.

"This special issue expresses how global arts education can become a site of alternative positionalities, practices and pedagogies using decolonializing methodology. These expressions also respond to COVID-19, and the importance of perspectives from those disproportionally affected by the pandemic, as exacerbated by colonial ideology." [Intellect]
