Looking, thinking, speaking
The Roche Court Educational Trust (RCET) is based at the beautiful New Art Centre, Roche Court Sculpture Park near Salisbury in Wiltshire.
We work locally, nationally and internationally with teachers, young people and specialist groups to develop confidence and skills by looking, thinking and speaking about art. Our aim is to provide a greater understanding and enjoyment of the culture of our age through making connections across disciplines and cultures, inspired by the work of internationally acclaimed modern and contemporary artists.
We are running tours throughout the summer for small groups and families. Contact email@example.com for more info and to book in advance. In light of recent Government guidelines, we are making plans to welcome schools and groups back to the Park in the Autumn. Bookings now open!
The Trust’s national public speaking competition, the ARTiculation Prize, invites sixth form students to give a short presentation on a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice. Partner galleries and museums host regional heats across the country prior to the finals at the University of Cambridge. The Roche Court Educational Trust’s ARTiculation initiative is designed to stimulate students’ interest and understanding of art while developing individual thinking, observation, research, language and presentation skills. You can read more about the Prize and apply to take part online.
