|Series title:||Education Unit: Arts Education in a Multicultural Society, 1985-1992|
In 1978 the Arts Council appointed its first Education Liason Officer with a view to implementing the chartered duty "to develop and improve the knowledge, understanding and practice of the arts". In 1980 the Education Unit was established to cope with increasing demands for advice and guidance from both arts and education bodies.
This series contains the Education Unit's records relating to the Arts Education in a Multi-cultural Society project (AEMS). The project was jointly initiated and funded by the Arts Council, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Commission for Racial Equality. The project aimed to give effect to existing policies of multicultural education and to encourage multicultural awareness in the arts curriculum. It worked in partnership with local education authorities, Regional Arts Associations and practising black, Asian and oriental artists.
These files contain all the administration papers, correspondence and publicity material relating to Education Unit's involvement in this project.
There is no list of the individual files in this series currently available.
