The Arts in Education Open Day brings school teachers and arts practitioners and cultural organisations together to stimulate and encourage networks for possible future working relationships.  View a short clip of Arts in Education 2011.


Schools will:

  • become more aware of the breadth and depth of creative practice locally
  • have opportunities to forge links with arts practitioners and cultural organisations whom they may wish to utilise to support their teaching and learning
  • utilise the event for planning future curriculum support, extended work and accreditation to pursue quality and range of provision across the creative curriculum
  • be confident in the professionalism of those they encounter on the day

Artists and cultural organisations will:

  • have the opportunity to promote their work to state and independent schools from nursery, primary, secondary and special schools across three boroughs
  • be able to network with over one hundred other artists and organisations on the day
  • be given the opportunity to raise their profile
