Leeds Arts University are delighted to announce the book launch event for Access and Widening Participation in Arts Higher Education: Practice and Research, an edited book by Professor Samantha Broadhead. This new edited book represents Leeds Arts University’s commitment to Access and Widening Participation.
This volume brings together a range of practitioners, managers, and researchers from various institutions who work within the field of arts higher education to reflect on strategies to increase access and widening participation (WP). The issues presented in this book are situated within a wider global context where countries are seeking greater harmonisation of higher education as students and workers become more mobile, crossing international borders.
The chapter authors address various issues within higher education institutions from a WP context, including areas such as creative writing, music, art and design.
In exploring these issues the editor and her chapter authors seek to answer how those teaching in arts higher education can promote the value and quality of their work while ensuring fair access and wide participation for all.
Chapter authors: Prof. Samantha Broadhead, Prof. John Butcher, Dr. Anactoria Clarke, Dr. Laura da Costa, Melanie Davis, Dr. Jill Fernie-Clarke, Jason Huxtable, Deirdre McLeod, Frances Ann Norton, Dr. Karen Tobias-Green, and Prof. Randall Whittaker.
Foreword by Prof. Susan Orr (Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education, De Montfort University).
