First We See: The National Review of Visual Education
First We See: The National Review of Visual Education is an Australian Government report into the visual education of Australian students.
The National Review of Education in Visual Arts, Craft, Design and Visual Communication was commissioned in 2005 by the Australia Council for the Arts with the then Australian Government Department of Education Science and Training (DEST) (now the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations [DEEWR]) and in cooperation with the then Australian Government Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts (DCITA) (now the Australian Government Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts [DEWHA]).
A national steering committee of key leaders and stakeholders in arts and education sectors provided advice about the review and assisted researchers with important connections to key issues and problems.
The report includes a review of existing programs and a series of good practice case studies, a framework for the future of visual education and four key recommendations.
