Abstract

This article offers an examination of three Arts teacher professionallearning initiatives implemented in Australia. Through a process ofdeveloping storied vignettes for relational encounter and meaning making,the article identifies some key factors that operate across contexts toenable and/or inhibit Arts teachers to achieve and embody transformativeoutcomes for Arts learning and pedagogy. Adopting an iterativecollaborative process individual storylines become an entwined metanarrative in which vignettes of recent Arts teacher professional learningexemplars disrupt the deficit storylines of competition and conflict thathave operated historically to marginalise the Arts in education contexts.We suggest that such deficit storylines can be reimagined as generativespaces for possibility. Subject or discipline borders in context can beviewed as thresholds to enliven rather than fragment the presence andpurpose of future oriented agendas for Arts education.
