About this issue:

Issue 43 of the Engage Journal is a celebration of the profession and practice of visual arts and gallery education. As the first fully digital edition, the issue celebrates, analyses and tracks the major developments, influences and moments in the sector. It also considers current definitions and motivations of practitioners and organisations, looking forward as much as back across these last three decades.

Profession and Practice has an extended, specially commissioned essay as its heart. Values, Practice, Profession is a comprehensive overview of the key developments, individuals and institutions that have shaped gallery education. Written by Ceri Jones, with significant contributions from Sarah Plumb, it is divided into two parts: Part 1: 20th century and Part 2: 21st century.

Alongside other significant contributions, the Journal has a section entitled Three questions for, which asks a wide and influential set of educators to reveal their influences and aspirations for the future.
