Art @ Bundanon

Think you’d like to spend a few days at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon residence staying in accommodation designed by Glen Murcott? If you haven’t done so already, check out this video of Wyndham students at Bundanon and get a deposit back to the front office by 25th October. This is a great opportunity to be part of an exceptional immersion into some serious art-making.

It’s especially pleasing to see Maleeha publicly acknowledged for her commitment and exceptional talent.

Academic subjects alone won’t cut it.

“Employers are crying out for recruits who are creative. The notion that arts and music are not seen as ‘hard’ enough subjects is damaging to the economy.”

Here’s a thoughtful; albeit, relatively brief piece, on the value of creative thinking and creativity in education.

The notion that the Arts should sit below the post industrial hierarchy of English, Maths, Science and the Humanities is antiquated. Everything we have (man-made) comes from the minds of creative people. Simply ludicrous to undervalue it.
