'This book has heft. It offers valuable insights into new ways of thinking about inclusivity, and the time for exploring intersectionality in visual arts education has almost certainly come.'
'This much needed collection of essays is an illuminating read for anyone interested in ensuring an inclusive future for arts education. It shifts our thinking by exploring identity not as a single label - race, gender, disability - but as a complex set of changing multiple identities manifesting in relation to others over time. It expertly helps the reader to understand why excluding institutional practices are unjust and restrictive and proposes a sustainable way forward.'
'With the creation of fragmented and pluralist societies we face numerous challenges to what collective identity might mean. Art offers us many possibilities to unite. This critical book expertly begins but does not try to finish the significant challenge to art educators everywhere.'
'This excellent collection of papers problematizes discourses inherent to belonging, identity and boundary formation in visual arts education. While interrogating positions on race, gender, sexuality and class, it foregrounds categories of exclusion and discrimination often ignored in art and design pedagogies and learning environments. As such, Inclusion and Intersectionality in Visual Arts Education extends our awareness of exclusive practices across a range of structural, social, cultural and political fields. It is a book that should be read by anyone with an interest in fairness and equality of opportunity.'
