Join NSEAD on a journey of inclusion, equity, and diversity as we strive for every art educator to critically review, revise, 
and decolonise their curriculum. Our mission is to advance art education, for everyone, so every child can achieve
their potential. 

Course Curriculum

Better Practice in Art, Craft, and Design: Developing an Anti-Racist Curriculum is a professional development course that consists of seven online workshops, created, and delivered by members of the NSEAD ARAEA (Anti-Racist Art Education Action) group.

Each workshop focuses on a different topic to guide and support the ongoing development of inclusivity and equity in your art, craft, and design curriculum. This course can be used as part of your department’s curriculum planning or as individual art educator’s CPD.
