City Gallery

Creatives in Schools: An Artist-Led Workshop

Wednesday 23 Oct, 6pm | Free

A discussion for artists and teachers curious about working together

Artist Gabby O’Connor leads a discussion on possible approaches to the recently announced Creatives in Schools funding opportunity. Gabby will present examples of previous successful artist-in-schools projects she’s participated in, and how to work across the curriculum toward a range of different outcomes.

City Gallery Educators will discuss how the Gallery is a community learning space, and how our LEOTC programmes can be integrated with potential Creatives in Schools programmes.

Applications for the new Creatives in Schools programme (run by the Ministry of Education) are now open, for delivery in 2020. The first round of applications is due 1 November. If you’re interested in applying for this round, or in the future, this session is designed to support you.

Refreshments will be served.

This is a free event, but booking is essential. Book now
