It is with great pleasure that we invite you to be part of the InSEA 34th World Congress to be held 7 - 11 July, 2014 in Melbourne, Australia. The world famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) Melbourne’s sporting and cultural icon has been purposefully selected as the venue for this triennial world art congress to provide a stimulating backdrop for exploring and examining the theme: Diversity through Art – Change, Continuity, Context. Recent decades have seen the greatest transition in visual culture in history: the art object to the idea, the static to the ephemeral, Euro/American aesthetic ideals to exciting affirmations of nationally based visual cultures and especially the renewed appreciation of Indigenous art forms. The global movements of refugees and migration have changed the cultural mix in societies providing the visual arts and visual arts education with both challenges and opportunities.

  • Call for Expression of Interest in organising an InSEA Conference  in 2015/16

InSEA is looking for expressions of interest for Art Education bodies interested in organising an InSEA Conference in future years. We are developing a conference program up to and including a World Congress in 2017. While the World Congress in Melbourne, Australia in 2014 is in place and arrangements for a 2013 program will be published early in the new year, 2015/16 are available for Regional Conferences and some interest has been shown. 2017 is our next available World Congress. InSEA is looking for expressions of interest rather than firm plans at this stage as we attempt to put in place arrangements for the coming years. By way of providing early information you will find below the url for InSEA's Conference procedures. Please contact the InSEA Secretary for further information. For more information please see procedures for the organisation of international congresses.

Arts have proved to be a natural language of children through which they respond to their learning and developmental needs to gradually become productive and contributing individuals of society. Integration of arts with other subjects has served to overcome inhibitions of a different kind, and promote exploration, observation, imagination and free expression. Integration of arts with curricular subjects can bring variety in the teaching-learning process, promote inclusion through participation of every child, enhance social values by appreciating and respecting the expression of each other, and practice unity in diversity by sharing experiences of different families and communities into the classroom.
