Arts Works: re-engaging with learning, training or work
Gattenhof, Sandra J. (2005) Arts Works: re-engaging with learning, training or work. Lowdown Magazine, 27(5), pp. 25-27.
In the past 12 months, there has been much discussion and project-based work both nationally and at a state level seeking to address the issue of education and training for young people, who for various reasons, have disengaged from formal education. In looking at a number of programs currently running in Australian states and territories a common feature began to emerge. The successful programs or programs with strong outcomes have used training through various arts forms and popular culture to address the issue of educational re-engagement. But, how do arts-based programs provide participants with a greater understanding of the options available to young people who are currently not in education, training and/or employment to enter or re-enter learning or earning and gain the self-confidence to continue along a recognised educational pathway?
