Abstract

This article explores the layered impact of partnership learning across museum, pre-service education and school contexts where the agency of trees provokes new insights for art education practices. It features collective experiences of a Tree School and Tree Story exhibition along with associated Art-Reach experiences between pre-service teachers (PSTs) and early primary school children. For us, the culturally-marked Boon Wurrung tree was a central inspiration for cross-institutional learning. It energised our understanding of Indigenous knowledges and provoked ways to re-imagine how we explore Indigenous perspectives through art education as entangled with Museum education.
