About us

​Arts Researchers and Teachers Society (ARTS) is a special interest group (SIG) within the Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies (CACS), which, in turn, is a constituent association of the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE). 

ARTS SIG works to

  • foster the exchange of ideas in arts research across Canada

  • provide a forum for discussion of arts curriculum in a Canadian context

  • encourage scholarly work in arts education; and

  • bring together members of the arts disciplines who maintain a common interest in the general principles of curriculum theory and  development
