Abstract

This chapter discusses education for social art practice by examining four postgraduate level courses that address social art practice located in institutions in Scotland, Ireland and England. It traces the development of education for social art practice through the 1960s and 70s when innovative
courses slipped into the mainstream of higher education, for example, and new
ideas about community and socially focused programmes began to provide alternatives to the dominance of fine art education. Programmes including contextual art, community arts and critical fine art practice evolved and formed the genesis of the postgraduate studies that are highlighted in the chapter.
