Abstract: 
This paper deals with the issue of forming a national association of New Zealand art educators. It outlines the context in which art education presently exists by describing the perilous state of the world; ascribing the cause of that situation to a particular mode of consciousness, a particular attitude to life; suggesting, through examples, that the view of the world held by arts educators is positively different; indicating that, consequently, the role of arts educators has been, is and will be to counter-attack by affirming, and nurturing in their students, a world view - an attitude to life - which cherishes creative thought, critical questioning, reflection, introspection, and wisdom; and, outlining a few of the achievements of the Australian Institute of Art Education (AIAE) and, by so doing, intimate that collective endeavour is a powerful means of fostering those aims.
