The Relate North series is dedicated to the exploration and sharing of contemporary practices in arts-based research and academic knowledge exchange in the fields of art, design and education. Each book in the series consists of peer-reviewed chapters and visual essays. The mission of this particular book is to examine the potential of collaborative practices in art, design and education. This book brings together the work of leading researchers, scholars artists and designers.
Contributors focus on the general topic of collaborative art, design and education, from the perspective of those living, researching and practising art and art education in Northern and Arctic countries. The editors believe that northern, Arctic and Circumpolar countries are under-represented in the academic, design and art education literature, despite the wealth of innovative research and practice taking place in those areas. The Relate North series and this book in particular, offers a channel for those engaged in collaborative art, design and education to raise awareness and share experience and findings amongst those committed to these disciplines in northern countries, the Arctic and beyond.
