New National Arts in Education Portal: Consultations

Kids’ Own is leading the development of a brand new national initiative – the Arts in Education Portal, in partnership with the Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The portal is being developed as part of the implementation of the Arts in Education Charter, which was launched by both Departments in early 2013.

The Arts in Education Portal will be a new national digital resource of arts and education practice for teachers, artists, and anyone working in the field of arts in education. It will provide a dedicated space where good practice, research, resources and inspirational case studies can be shared and accessed online.

Kids’ Own is delivering a series of consultations nationwide, in partnership with the ATECI, through which we invite you to tell us about your vision for the Arts in Education Portal. This resource aims to support you in your future practice, and now is the chance to tell us what it could look like or what features and functions could support you in your work.

How to get involved…

Come to their evening consultation session – delivered in partnership with the ATECI – at the Kilkenny Education Centre, Wed 12th November, 7.00-9.00pm, / 056-7760200

Places can be booked through the Education Centre. Refreshments will be served.
