Arts-based and Contemplative Practices in Research and Teaching : Honoring Presence Hardback
Edited by Susan Walsh, Barbara Bickel, Carl Leggo
Part of the Routledge Research in Education series
This volume presents a scholarly investigation of the ways educators engage in artistic and contemplative practices - and why this matters in education.
Arts-based learning and inquiry can function as a powerful catalyst for change by allowing spiritual practices to be present within educational settings, but too often the relationship between art, education and spirituality is ignored.
Exploring artistic disciplines such as dance, drama, visual art, music, and writing, and forms such as writing-witnessing, freestyle rap, queer performative autoethnograph, and poetic imagination, this book develops a transformational educational paradigm.
Its unique integration of spirituality in and through the arts addresses the contemplative needs of learners and educators in diverse educational and community settings.
