At NVAEC in 2019 we are asking: What is at the heart of art education?

We believe teachers are at the heart. Teachers are the heartbeat, they are art advocates, they are art tragics, they are passionate. They are brave, they wear their hearts on their sleeves and they keep students at the centre. Our theme in 2019, in line with the major summer exhibition Love & Desire: Pre-Raphaelite Masterpieces from the Tate, is all about matters of the heart - inspiration, bravery, compassion and connection.

The conference program in 2019 will offer opportunities for teachers of all levels of schooling as well as artists and educators from the museum and gallery sector to explore a broad range of current issues in visual art education.
