Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, is calling for proposals from colleagues in the UK and worldwide that reflect on the development of gallery education policy and practice, highlighting the contribution of key individuals. This year Engage marks thirty years advocating for and supporting visual arts and gallery education. Appropriately, this issue celebrates the development of the profession, and pays tribute to key figures that have conceived, developed and analysed gallery education pedagogies and practice. While looking back, this issue also aims to pinpoint work that currently defines gallery education and what motivates people to enter the profession now. Successful submissions receive editorial support and a writers fee.
