A whole host of challenges confronts Arts education as it enters the Age of the Prosumer. Besides seeking ways to make Arts Education relevant to prosumers, arts education leaders will need to address phenomena such as affluenza, infoluenza, meet expectations of rapidly shifting operational paradigms in the knowledge economy, consider the implications of Moore’s Law and respond to changing educational policies and practices. This paper will discuss the need for a human-centred education characterized by the valuing and development of indigenous arts pedagogy, the eight divides that hinder the nurturing of human creativity, and the potential of technology-infused sonic and visual cultures in human development. Selected key issues of education reform for Creative Arts Education will also be discussed .
