About this book

This volume offers educators, higher education institutions, communities and organizations critical understandings and resources that can underpin respectful, reciprocal and transformative educative relationships with First Peoples internationally. With a focus on service learning, each chapter provides concrete examples of how arts-based, community-led projects can enhance and support the quality and sustainability of First Peoples’ cultural content in higher education. In partnership with communities across Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand, Canada and the United States, contributors reflect on diverse projects and activities, offer rich and engaging first-hand accounts of student, community and staff experiences, share recommendations for arts-based service learning projects and outline future directions in the field.

Reviews

All educators with an interest in enhancing future teachers’ understanding of social justice and arts-based learning will benefit from reading this book. Arts-based service learning is here presented as a tool for stepping outside traditional classrooms, in order to learn about culture and to engage with real subjects. The central concepts reciprocity, meaningful service, reflection, development and diversity are discussed using a wide range of references to international research. Although many of the chapters concern Australian projects carried out with Australian first peoples communities and Australian universities, the editors present the challenges and affordances on an analytical and reflective level that is both inspiring and useful to international readers. Eva Saether, Lund University, Sweden

I found this collection of essays moving on multiple levels as an artist and teacher who is a descendant of White European colonizers. It evoked a past remembering of forced silencing and deep loss, while simultaneously in the present being touched by the embedded wisdom and knowledge First Peoples bring to the future through restoring the sacred in art and cultural practices. Barbara Bickel, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, USA
