Event description

Description

Freelands Foundation will be hosting an evening of conversations that will reflect on the last four years of our partnership with the Institute of Education and examine the question ‘Should we teach art?’

The Foundation has been working on a collaborative project between artist teachers from the Art & Design PGCE course at the Institute of Education, University College London (IOE/UCL), exploring the idea of Teaching as an Artistic Practice. In December 2016 we held a Salon that asked ‘Should we teach art?’ and to follow on from this the evening panel and audience will be asked to reflect on a series of questions around this theme: What does it mean to teach art? Can you teach art? What place should art have in the curriculum? How has the climate shifted since the Salon in 2016?

Beginning with an opportunity to view our current exhibition Resist – Things Artists Do Whilst Learning to Teach, which shows the work of the 26 artist teachers that are part of the project, guests will be invited to submit questions and be part of an open discussion with our three panellists. The panellists, chaired by Andy Ash, will present their response to the question ‘Should we teach art?’.

18:00 An opportunity to view our current exhibition; complimentary drinks will be served.

18:30 Discussion begins.

Book your free ticket via Eventbrite. Please note that spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Resist - Things Artists Do Whilst Learning to Teach, 26 April – 9 June.


Andy Ash is an artist, researcher and teacher with over 20 years working in higher education; he has been part of the IOE/UCL partnership for the last four years.
