The Trust received a grant from the Ernest Cook Trust, from May 2015 to April 2016, to design and lead a programme of support for teachers and schools. We are indebted to their support as we are now able to offer new and exciting opportunities. These specialist events enable teachers to enjoy looking, thinking and speaking about modern and contemporary art, feeling inspired with new skills and ideas to share with their students and schools.

Join us for a special tour of the current exhibitions at the New Art Centre. To celebrate the BIG draw campaign, Jamie Hobson, from London College of Communication, will give a presentation on ways that ‘non-drawers’ such as scientists, engineers, doctors, electricians and plumbers use drawing as an aid to inform, explain, analyse, innovate, explore and deduce. Jamie will also lead an interactive workshop ‘But I Can’t Draw’ to explore thinking through drawing.

We invite teachers, tutors and careers advisors from secondary schools, colleges and universities to join us for a consultation evening to explore what support is currently available for students to learn more about the arts industries. Jamie Hobson, Programme Director of Graphic Communication, London College of Communication and Emma Sheldon, Design Lead, Dyson, will lead discussions with their own knowledge and experiences as educators and industry professionals, as well as in the case of Emma, reflections on recent personal experiences as a student. These presentations will be used as provocations to consider the current landscape of careers support for students and how we can all work together in the future to strengthen this guidance into the creative industries.
All attending will take part in workshops to negotiate partnerships for the future on how the Trust and our partners will be able to offer robust advice and support.
