Episode 6: ‘A lot of it is questioning…all the time’ – Fiona King

In this episode, Ciara Regan caught up with visual arts educator Fiona King.

From the art squad to curriculum design and teaching, Fiona has been building communities of art practice through teaching and socially engaged art for over 20 years

Fiona King is the coordinator of The Professional Master of Education (PME) programme, a lecturer and researcher in Art Education within the School of Education in the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Dublin.

Fiona also co-leads the trail blazing Change Lab initiative in the NCAD Gallery with Tony Murphy as part of an immersive Ubuntu Network experience that takes place annually. The Change Lab prepares student art teachers to grapple with their identities as researchers, artists and educators by exploring the potential of art as a social commentator.

A special word of thanks to Fiona and Tony for the formative discussions in the canteen in NCAD and for supporting the project from brainstorm to launch night in what became the Irish Global Solidarity in 100 Objects exhibition.
