Studies in Arts-Based Educational Research (SABER)
SpringerBriefs in Arts-Based Educational Research (BABER)
Springer Press is pleased to announce an international series of books, edited books and monographs entitled Studies in Arts-Based Educational Research (SABER) and SpringerBriefs in Arts-Based Educational Research (BABER). These series will not only be a focused book resource of the work of Arts-Based educational researchers but also provide a permanent on-line repository so a variety of media can be exhibited along with the print books or ebooks.
The series will focus on research that utilizes aesthetic forms to (re)generate, (re)interpret and(re)represent human and more than human worlds. Methodologies and modalities can include but are not restricted to:
Submissions should demonstrate how the arts enhance the understanding of Arts-Based Educational Research and researchers, general audiences and topics/issues under investigation while being aesthetically infused in themselves.
Art Education Australia (AEA), proudly hosts the journal
Australian Art Education.
AEA Council seeks to appoint a leading scholar in art education to fulfil the role of Editor.
It is envisioned that the Editor would undertake the role in a voluntary capacity supported by the AEA Council, for an initial period of one year. Part of this role would entail a review of the journal in its current form. The AEA Council is keen to work with the Editor to consider ways that the journal might be re-developed to more effectively disseminate research that reflects the interests of art educators in tertiary, school and community settings in local and international contexts.
The AEA Council invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the role of Editor. The EOI should include:
The AEA Council will consider all EOIs submitted and advise applicants of the outcome by the end of the year.

President of AEA
The Post-Graduate Program in Art at the University of Brasilia publishes the academic journal entitled VIS. This publication began in 2014 and promotes research that attends to the Visual Arts, Performing Arts, and Design. Current contributors have been educators, historians, philosophers and sociologists. The journal is open access and is available at http://periodicos.unb.br/index.php/revistavis with articles mainly published in Portuguese, while submissions in English, Spanish, and French are also welcome.
We are planning an upcoming issue on arts based research. With this call for papers and visual essays we are inviting artists and arts educators to contribute works that combine theorizing and practicing to exemplify the best of arts based research. Single author and collaborative works are encouraged. Experimental work is encouraged and provocative essays that extend discussions in this area are also encouraged.
Articles and visuals essays are due no later than March 31, 2017. After peer review, accepted articles and visual essays may still need revisions. Final articles and visual essays will be printed in VIS in late 2017 or early 2018.

The AEA Executive Committee met a few weeks ago. Having finally settled many loose ends on the administrative and financial fronts we are now in a position to take small steps toward working proactively toward a future-oriented agenda for AEA.
Our priorities are to develop the areas of the journal and membership, with a longer term view of reforming our research seminar program.
What follows is an update of our recent work and some calls for your support and input.
Editorial Matters: Dr Lexi Cutcher is moving on from her role at Editor of Australian Art Education. Lexi has achieved a great deal in developing the journal and supporting AEA in this capacity. We are sad to see her leave but wish her all the best in her next endeavours. She has committed to completing her duties upon the release of the next edition for 2016 which will be ready in a few weeks’ time. Lexi will also be providing advice about the role and we will shortly be calling for Expressions of Interest for this role. Stay tuned….
Call for Papers
We are committed to developing another edition of Australian Art Education in 2016 or in early 2017. We invite you to submit an article as soon as possible to keep the journal editions ticking over.
Submission details, style guideline and information about the journal can be found at: http://www.arteducation.org.au/index.php/journals
The Future of the Journal
During the regeneration of this association the current AEA Council made a strong commitment tosustaining the journal. We are now in a position to take stock of how the journal is travelling and ways we might develop it into the future.
On 15 June 2016 AEA Councillors are holding a special meeting to focus on the future of the journal. We envisage this as a ‘think tank’ on how we should position the journal into the future and options we have in this regard.
A few questions now arise for us in terms of the future of the AEA journal. We’d like your input on these issues and invite you to contribute constructive ideas and ways forward:
In preparation for this meeting you may like to explore how other journals are operating in the current climate, seek advice from colleagues in other fields about what makes for good journal practice…we are looking for creative suggestions and ideas.
The good news is that we are now totally in control of the financial arrangements. All links to the previous administrators have been severed and to assist Jenny Grenfell in her work as Treasurer we will engage a bookkeeper for a few hours each month when required.
We are in the process of submitting two annual statements to Consumer Affairs Victoria, one of which should have been lodged for 2014-15, the other for the current 2015-16 financial year) to report our financial activity and is a requirement of being an incorporated association. Thanks to both Jenny Grenfell as Treasurer and Kathy Hendy-Ekers as Secretary for their continued work on this matter.
We appear to have a steady stream of renewals trickling in and all outstanding invoices have been settled. We are still coming to terms with the nature of our financial constraints and scope. At this point we have a modest working balance.
We are seeking a person who might fill a part-time or casual role as Administrative Officer. The main duties would be:
In the interim Kathy Hendy-Ekers is monitoring the emails and mail.
We are currently working on establishing an accurate list of financial members having worked through the complexities of the financial records.
Future key priorities for Membership include:
Renew your AEA Membership:
National Agenda and issues
Mark Selkrig as offered to be the AEA Representative or contact person for the National Advocates for Arts Education (NAAE), a lobby group lead by Julie Dyson. While this link has historically been problematic on some issues, we felt it important to remain linked into conversations impacting Visual Arts education.
Karen Maras will be the AEA contact for ACARA agenda & will work on establishing closer links with State Professional Associations for Art Educators.
