Contemporary Asian societies, cultures and traditional patterns of life are experiencing rapid transformation. Deep paradigm shifts, and increasing demands from governments, industry, and communities are redefining and challenging old pedagogies. Policy shifts, market demand, new industry practices and technologies and, unprecedented social, urban and ecological complexity are all shaping the Asian education experience. This book offers a broadly ranging contextual discourse on the forces that are shaping contemporary visual pedagogy in the Asian Region, discussing significant transformative drivers influencing recent shifts in visual art and design practice and education. It surveys a diverse and expansive range of innovative, educational and research initiatives by scholars working across the fields of art, education and design, identifying key socio cultural themes that frame research, their associated theoretical positions and practices. The reader will encounter voices articulating vivid histories through the lens of epoch spanning traditions of visual culture, policy developments influencing and shaping curriculum and evolutions in the cultural industries, and new methodologies for innovative outreach programs. We introduce this small but timely volume by highlighting its importance at a time when the role of education, and in particular, education in the context of creativity has arguably never been more important. The visual is something all cultures share, and as the collected voices here advocate, if only by intimation, the visual in educational contexts might just function as a key to developing better intercultural understanding and a more collaborative vision for designing our collective futures.
