Multicultural music education in Victoria and the efforts of Australian,Sri Lankan community artists to sustain cultural traditions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This study explores the benefits of multicultural music education and efforts of Australian/Sri Lankan community arts practitioners considering data from literature reviews, three research studies conducted and researcher experiences/observations (as an artist in residence) thus offering a phenomenological account to the reader. The author points out that community arts experts successfully manage to engage learners and effectively deliver related content, transmitting the knowledge of multicultural arts (music) what ‘qualified’ teachers in formal educational settings struggle to accomplish.
