Reimagining civics education: what role can the arts play?

Exploring the link between arts education and civic engagement.

According to many studies, global measures of civic engagement among school-aged students are declining. ISV’s latest research looks at how civic engagement is taught in schools and how we can enhance participation in civic learning.

The report includes a survey of Victorian Independent schools undertaken by ISV in partnership with Project Zero at the Harvard School of Education.

Our findings highlight an opportunity to re-examine how civic learning occurs in schools, to help develop young people who can engage thoughtfully and creatively with issues of public importance.
