Hi everyone, I am in a very unique position of being at a new school which is offering visual art in year 11 for the first time next year. I am currently writing units of work for Vis Art and VAP which will be a composite class. If anyone would like to share some awesome ideas/ units/ work they do at their school I would love to hear! Thank you ...

Round Robin – Curating and Writing Indigenous Art
August 23, 2017, 6:00pm - August 23, 2017, 7:30pm
'Round Robin – Curating and Writing Indigenous Art: Tokenism, Pluralism and other Perspectives'.
How have curators and writers of Indigenous and non-Indigenous heritage presented Indigenous art, and what is at stake in a critical engagement with their work? Such questions are current and must continue if we are to effectively navigate and represent these plural perspectives, while addressing the concept of cultural “Otherness” and avoiding tokenism.
Join artists, anthropologists, curators and theorists in a discussion that coincides with the exhibition 'Still in my mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality'.

SCREENING FILM: "THE SQUARE"
Christian (Claes Bang) likes to think he’s a good and ethical person. He’s a devoted dad-of-two, a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, a charitable giver, and he even drives an electric car. And as curator of Stockholm’s palatial art museum, his next show is The Square, a wonderfully positive installation that invites passers-by to do good deeds, reminding them of their interconnectedness, their social conscience, their very humanity.
But some days, it’s hard to live up to your own ideals. After stepping in to help a stranger, Christian finds he’s been mugged, his wallet and phone have been stolen – and his calm and considered altruism is gone in an instant, replaced by a raging need to track down the thief at all costs.
Meanwhile, at the museum, a ruthlessly gung-ho public relations agency has gone a little too far to build some buzz for The Square, sparking a public outcry and adding to Christian’s woes.
