In: Evaluating the Impact of Arts and Cultural Education: A European and International Research Symposium, 10-12 January 2007, Paris, France.
Published pesentation to international symposium on the nature of pupil, teacher and artist talk and language in school-based creative arts projects. The activities in such projects, and the workshop atmosphere they generate, open up opportunities for discussion where pupils’ talk is authentic and wide-ranging, encompassing personal, social, imaginary and real-world themes. Pupils’ talk is focused on the external work itself, techniques and methods, and also on internal, imaginary worlds which become visually manifested. The development of relationships within communities of professional practice also feature strongly in this collaborative discourse.
