Master Art Education research podcast
In September 2022 I started with the Master Art Education at Fontys School for Fine and Performing Arts. Even though I am a starter at the study, I’ll start right away with graduation research. The study I finished a few months before I started with the Master – Teacher Training Visual Arts – I created a frame work called Beyond The Cool.
This framework is for digital art educative platform about [the lack] of perspectives within art education. The research and interviews with students and experts showed me that the next step is to not focus that much on creating a digital platform for pupils / students, but for art teachers and lecturers. For this reason I start right away with my research.
To track down my progress and what I have seen or read I have created this podcast. I already did this during my Teacher Training, so the first episode isn’t 1, but 8. Note: the podcast is in Dutch.
About the show
Black Digest started as a private audio journal during the graduation year of my Teacher Training. Documenting your journey in a blog or Padlet was mandatory. Instead of writing I wanted something that tied in with the topics I was working with: cultural identity and perspectives.
As I did a lot of research into hiphop and the Caribbean culture, oral storytelling is key for those cultures. As someone with Caribbean roots I know that storytelling is vital in our family. That is why I decided to tapped into something that was close to me, and is still not explored with the Dutch college system for exams. I will continue with Black Digest as part of my journal for my master graduation research.
