CHASS Media release

Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences 21 April 2009
Creative arts add strength to national school curriculum

The Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences believe Australia will gain new economic growth and stronger community life as a result of the decision to make creative arts part of the national school curriculum.

The Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs last week decided that the arts, including music, should form part of the second stage of national curriculum development for Australia. The Minister for the Arts, The Hon Peter Garrett AM, linked the announcement to skills development saying "Creativity, interpretation, innovation and cultural understanding are all sought-after skills for new and emerging industries in the 21st century. Arts education provides students with the tools to develop these skills."

CHASS President Professor Linda Rosenman says: “The Council made arts education a priority in its policy work because the evidence was clear on the benefits to creative life and general academic achievement when schools made rigorous sequential arts learning part of their curriculums.” Arts education was also a focus of discussion at the 2020 Summit.

Professor Linda Rosenman congratulated the National Advocates for Arts Education (which included CHASS member organisations) for their consistent work in bringing attention to the issue in schools and with governments all over Australia. “This major decision is the result of universities, teachers, parents, artists and industry organisations demonstrating the benefits of an arts rich education to Australian policy makers,” she said.

“It will add to productivity growth, and strengthen creativity in Australian communities.”

The Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences advocates for the humanities, arts and social sciences enabling the sector to contribute fully to a prosperous, innovative, creative and inclusive Australia. CHASS has over 100 members including universities, individual faculties, research centres, professional associations, arts training institutions and creative industry groups.
