This presentation discusses the findings from an interview research with 10 artists engaged by schools and/social service organisations to conduct art-making programmes with ‘youth-at-risk’. The interviews delved deep into understanding the practices and pedagogies of the artists, and the expected role of arts education in the social-emotional development of ‘youth-at-risk’. The art programmes covered in this study range from music, drama to visual arts and they are typically conducted over a period of 4 to 10 weeks. Key themes that have emerged from the interviews, including the shifting identities of the young people, the strategies used by artists to engage the youth and, the desired professional development support for the artists, will be discussed.
