During 2015, the InSEA Publications Working Group, established InSEA Publications to complement the range of publishing opportunities for our members and others wanting to publish with us. The idea of a publication that celebrates our core mission of ‘education through art’, we thought, was a timely one as Read’s seminal book, Education through Art was published in 1943 and the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA) was established in 1954. Given that passage of time and the seismic socio-political, ecological and economic changes that have taken place in the latter half of the 20th century we thought the time was right to invite our members and the wider art education community to reflect on the evolving nature of art education around the world. It seemed to us that there was an opportunity to take stock; to share research and praxis. Our view is that InSEA is a member led organisation, so we hoped that members would welcome a call that sought to critically examine what ‘learning though art’ might mean in practice. We believe this book continues and develops the tradition of InSEA supporting existing and new members in their efforts to celebrate research and good practice in art education (Preface, p.9).
