Keeping the conversations going…..

July 2014 we gathered in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare to exchange ideas on the future of art education.  What is its highest purpose?  What is the social function of an art school as an institution?  Have we a responsibility to prepare artists as predictors or just recorders of society?  How do we keep the student central and facilitate transformational experience in large institutions?

Lets keep this conversation going.  Share with us your thoughts and reflections on the time we spent together and the ideas that have bubbled to the surface since then.
