The new anthology Art Education for Social Justice, published by the National Art Education Association, was printed just in time for the 2010 National Art Education Conference in Baltimore. The theme for this year's conference, conveniently, was social justice. Co-editors: Tom Anderson, David Gussak, Kara Hallmark, and Allison Paul as well as authors: Christine Ballengee-Morris, Vesta Daniel, Karen Hutzel, Ryan Shin, Pamela Taylor, Kristin Congdon, Elizabeth Delacruz, Mary Stokrocki, Debrah Sickler-Voigt, Carolyn Erler, and Therese Quinn presented the new text at a super session on Friday afternoon. It was a wonderful opportunity to hear a few of the authors share their research and art and social justice initiatives. We hope the book will serve as a call for action and inspire others to share art education and social justice work.
If you have recently explored the anthology let us know what you think. Additionally, we look forward to the beginning of a forum for the many other initiatives that are happening across the country every day! Please share your own current and local art education for social justice initiatives.
