“Decolonising the Arts Curriculum: Perspectives on Higher Education”
This zine is a Student Union and Teaching & Learning Exchange co-production, and is part of the ongoing work to address the attainment gaps that persist at UAL and the call to widen the curriculum.
It is aimed at both students and staff, and intends to offer a collection of perspectives, ideas and thoughts on decolonising the curriculum, especially from a creative arts and design perspective.
It is not intended to be a definitive education tool, but rather a zine that will engage those who are currently not engaging with these topics, raise awareness and open up conversations that will allow people to take things further in their courses and collaborate within and outside the university setting.
We are accepting submissions in the format of:
- Written pieces (min. 50 words – max. 500 words)
- Pictures of other artefacts or artwork
- Poetry, creative writing, journalism, media, drama, performance art, fashion
- Film, sound new media links and reviews
(and any subject areas that are not listed here as the list is not exhaustive)
Contributions can relate to the following questions:
- Why/How to decolonise art and design?
- Why/How to decolonise university life?
- Why/How to decolonise academia?
- Why/How to decolonise curricula?
- Why/How to decolonise pedagogy?
Submissions are invited from Students and Staff.
