I am a lecturer based in London, I run a Public Art education program and I
am preparing a proposal for a research programme and wish to try out the
following questionnaire.
I have enjoyed the emails from artsednet and thought this maybe of interest
to some out there.
It is only a draft so please feel free to comment.

Communiversity Questionnaire

This introductory questionnaire seeks to identify if we learn arts and
cultural from social and community
settings. If this is true, can this woven into an arts education programme.

Conclusion

Weaving our individual cultural and artistic history is a complex and rich
story to tell, that relates to all our
lives.

I know I am stating the obvious here, but I hope from this short
questionnaire that you can see our own
cultural and artistic ability is linked to family and community and can be
very positive for our environment,
health, etc. Art is not something we just learn at School, College or
University. The way we learn and
weave our individual cultural and artistic is a much more complex process.
We learn more about art and
cultural outside educational institutions, but art educational systems
generally do not recognise this.

If you wish to send me your results of your questionnaire I would be
delighted to read them.

If you interested in being involved in a larger research programme or would
wish to part of an Arts
program, which involves distance learning, Community, Public Art, technology
and health please contact:
