Firstly, we need to assure you that the emergence of this website does not endanger the publication of the Art & Design Education Resource Guide (ADERG) as an annual book. The book is central to the project. It is by far the best medium to contain and provide access to such a large amount of information in one place. The website should be seen as a complement.

The Graduate Showcase pages are a creative source that build year after year. A key aspect is that the work displayed has been done by students only a few years older than school students.

Most secondary school students are unaware of the depth and breadth of the range of creative arts courses offered at tertiary institutions. The Graduate Showcase can be a real eye-opener.

The new Digital ADERG range of downloadable pages from the print publication makes it far easier for students to browse through the book on their own computers, tablets and smart phones.

No amount of web browsing can claim that.
