Celebrating cultural diversity through arts in the primary school

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


• To consider the context for exploring arts and culture with primary children within the current educational climate.
• To address the urgency of helping children to understand one another, and members of a wider society, through a deepening sense of their own cultural heritage, as well as exposure to those of others.
• To explore the relevance of collaborative research projects, such as EU funded Images and Identity (2010) and Creative Connections (2014).
• To suggest that by engaging children with (and in) artistic experiences that celebrate a wide range of world cultures, teachers can reduce the formation of stereotypical views, and promote tolerance and respect for others, embracing difference.
