The Arts in Education Portal was recently launched by Minister for Education and Skills Jan O’Sullivan TD and the Minister for Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht Heather Humphreys TD It is envisaged that the portal will be the key national digital resource for arts and education practice in Ireland.
Supported by the Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the portal will provide a platform through which good collaborative practice in the arts-in-education and arts education in Ireland will be supported, developed and enhanced. Submissions for the portal will be invited on an ongoing basis.
The recommendation to develop a digital resource of this kind dates back to Points of Alignment – The Report of the Special Committee on the Arts and Education published by the Arts Council in 2008. The proposal has since been developed with the support of both Departments in the context of the Arts in Education Charter.
We encourage you to visit the new site at www.artsineducation.ie and to engage with it as it develops.
