More than ever before, the arts are shaping and influencing our daily lives through the media and the creative industries. The arts are no longer confined to museums and theatres, but are adding value to our national economies and improving the quality of education. This has implications for arts education. However, unlike other subjects taught at schools, the arts have rarely made their purpose clear: Why are they taught? What is good arts education? And what are the benefits of teaching creative subjects or using creative ways to teach? In 2004 Professor Anne Bamford conducted the first international analysis of arts education research for UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Australia Council. Comparing data and case studies from more than 60 countries, the book analyses the differences between 'education in the arts' and 'education through the arts'. While appreciating that arts programmes are embedded in their unique social and cultural contexts, Professor Bamford develops internationally comparable standards for quality arts education. In addition, she identifies a number of concrete educational, cultural, and social benefits of arts education. This definitive work is of major interest to policy-makers, educators and artists. Professor Anne Bamford is Director of the Engine Room at the University of the Arts London and has an international reputation for her research in arts education, emerging literacies and visual communication. Through her research as a World Scholar for UNESCO, she has pursued issues of innovation, social impact and equity and diversity. She has conducted major national impact and evaluation studies for the governments of Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium and Australia.

Paula Stenberg is a creative careers strategist, workshop facilitator and small business mentor. She operates a careers lounge and facilitates professional development programmes through small group workshops. Some of the material in this book is derived from her Personal Branding and Identity Development workshop where numerous clients have benefited from the exercises about themselves, who have then moved forward and upward in their careers expressing their WOW factor! The WOW factor is that all evasive X-factor that some of us easily exude while others dont think they have any of IT at all! Paula believes everyone has an element of the X-factor, but it just needs discovering, harnessing and releasing. In this workbook she shows you how and directs the discovery of yours, particularly in relation to your world(s) of work. This workbook is sub-titled coloring in your nebula. Paula uses this as a metaphor, she explains: Our brains have their own nebulae (thats our grey matter) and our galaxies do too! (thats the iridescent gases). The nebulae are the star nurseries where stars are born. Our minds are like that, nurseries for ideas to be born, birthing sparks of inspiration. As the universe is infinite, so are our minds. Paula believes in figuratively coloring in our grey nebula to iridescent. Add light and you have instant color, add a little color and everything comes to life. Light up yourselves and become a star is not just what the famous have done; you too can shine like stars in the heavens, that hold us in awe of their splendour. Paula encourages coloring in your nebula by starting at your identity development and then personal brand, so you can gain that awe the wonder of you, your X-factor back into that someone who is AWESOME!
... it into their careers, making them successful or even famous in one way or another. It is all about the “X” and the “it” factors and how they produce the wow! It's true that X is elusive; not everyone has Xed their wow factor.
