MOVE is a groundbreaking series of interactive learning resources, designed to support the visual arts curriculum in primary and secondary schools, and featuring video artworks by some of Australia’s best-known artists.
Produced in partnership with the NSW Department of Education, MOVE: Video Art in Schools and MOVE Primary: Art in Motion were released in stages from 2007–2011. The launch of each resource was accompanied by a series of classroom workshops and professional learning seminars for teachers, with contributions by leading artists, curators and education professionals. MOVE: The Exhibition was presented at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, in 2010.
MOVE has been made available, free of charge, to schools throughout Australia, and received international recognition as a model for innovative teaching strategies in visual arts education.

MOVE: Video Art in Schools
MOVE: Video Art in Schools was produced in partnership with the NSW Department of Education, and designed to support secondary students and teachers to engage with contemporary artistic practice.
Some of Australia’s best-known artists were commissioned for the program—Daniel Crooks, Shaun Gladwell, The Kingpins, Todd McMillan, Jess MacNeil, Tracey Moffatt, TV Moore, Patricia Piccinini, David Rosetzky, Grant Stevens, John Tonkin and Daniel von Sturmer each generously contributed editions of their video art work for exclusive use in the classroom.
From 2007, MOVE: Video Art in Schools was distributed as a DVD package to 1800 schools and regional galleries across Australia, and was valued as an innovative and engaging tool for teaching contemporary art.
MOVE: Video Art in Schools is one of my most useful resources. For many years this has been a difficult area to teach as video art resources have been virtually non-existent. These videos have proven invaluable.
