Event description

Description

Would you like to visit a peaceful art gallery at the end of a busy day, whilst it's closed to the public, and meet like-minded colleagues from schools and the cultural sector? This is an opportunity to reflect on how art can help us all feel better, particularly young people in both primary and secondary schools.

Come along to Tate Liverpool to hearing about strategies for supporting children and young people with mental health issues and look after your own needs for the evening. There will be presentations from:

  • Jon Jones, Edge Hill University who will be talking about their current Tackling the Blues project

  • Kath Thompson, Liverpool Learning Partnership who will discuss current work being done in the city to develop a whole school approach to supporting mental health

A gallery workshop will explore how connecting with artwork in the gallery space can provide a creative and inclusive environment for dialogue and a platform to develop emotional literacy and self-esteem. There will be refreshments and plenty of opportunity for discussion and sharing practice.

This CPD is currently free because it is subsidised by the Liverpool Learning Partnership; however in future there may need to be a charge of approximately £15 per teacher.
