The 2009 Venice Biennale Education Resource

The Venice Biennale 2009 Education Resource is written by an Education Team formed through a collaboration between the Australia Council, the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales and the Institute of Early Childhood, Macquarie University.

Over a five month period the Education Team that consists of both COFA Art Education students and industry professionals have been working on the production of the Australia Venice Biennale Resource.

The contribution of COFA Art and Design education students in the research and writing of the Venice Biennale 2009 Education Resource highlights the crucial role of training institutions in the development of next generation artists, teachers, designers and theorists. The six COFA students selected to work on the project are at different stages of completing their degrees, who have elected to complete additional subject areas such as The Art Museum and Education and were well-positioned to work alongside a range of art world professionals in the research and writing of the Venice Biennale 2009 Education Resource.
