These areas should be interpreted in a broad sense and can include community arts organizations, schools, public pedagogies, arts administration, art therapy, and other disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches that are relevant to art and visual culture education. Theoretical and artistic research, in which qualitative and/or quantitative methods, as well as other formats and methodological experimentation will be considered for publication.
