Arts Policy Futures: The bigger picture
Following on from our December edition of NiTRO on policy issues relating to the tertiary arts sector, in this edition our contributors consider the bigger picture in arts, culture and education as they contemplate the policy considerations that should be pursued as we head towards the federal election later this year.
Introducing a new NiTRO Community News feature
In response to readers, we also introduce a new section on local happenings in our tertiary arts sector. We hope this will be a regular feature and invite community news from our tertiary institutions whether this is new appointments or employment opportunities in tertiary creative arts, upcoming conferences, exhibitions or performances, visits by key speakers or internal program or structure changes. Please send your news to: email@example.com
Sympathy for Christchurch colleaguesOn behalf of all our members and associated peak bodies in the arts, the DDCA extends our deepest sympathies to our colleagues in New Zealand following the senseless act that has caused so much pain and suffering following the recent tragedy in Christchurch. Intolerance and prejudice against any culture or group is not acceptable and we stand in solidarity with our colleagues in New Zealand at this time of great sadness.
Receive NiTRO In Your Inbox
Creative arts disciplines make up a significant component of the university staff and student population, yet we lack a vehicle to share common experiences and issues.
NiTRO provides a platform for creative artists practicing in academia to contribute to informed discussion about issues and activities relating to practice, research and teaching taking place within the university sector.
With details of events, conferences, research resources, and articles from guest contributors and creative artists working in DDCA member institutions, subscribing to NiTRO keeps you up to date with the what, why and when of university based creative arts.
Subscription is free and open to artists, educators, policymakers, and anyone interested in creative arts research and tertiary education.
Why Do We Ask These Questions?
There is no accurate information collected on the number or type of artists practicing in the university sector. To help DDCA to collect this data and ensure that our site reflects our audience, we ask subscribers to complete five questions at registration. This information will be used by DDCA only to indicate categories of subscribers. No individual data will be used or shared with third parties.
