Generation art: An educational program to engage audiences with art

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article outlines an innovative education program piloted at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery in 2016. Generation Art involved a series of after school workshops for Year 10 students focused on cultural engagement and learning in the art gallery. The program culminated in the creation of digital stories re-visioning the art gallery and its collection from a youth perspective. These resources have been shared publicly on the gallery website and in a public screening. Action research was undertaken to document and evaluate the program and the underpinning partnership model. In this article, the program and research is outlined to illustrate its significance in engaging youth audiences with art and art galleries.
