The engage International Summer School welcomes experienced educators, visual artists, curators and academics – working in the field of gallery and museum education and engaged visual art practice – to review and develop their practice during a three-day residential course. Please note that the deadline for applications has now been extended to 5pm on Wednesday 21 May, in order to allow a greater number of colleagues to attend.
This peer-led professional development event represents an opportunity for mid-career or senior colleagues to work together to:
– Reflect on aspects of current practice in gallery and museum education
– Review current research and political agendas
– Learn about international contexts for gallery and museum education
– Network with UK and international colleagues
– Consider the role of artists working with participants
This year’s engage Summer School will be hosted by Falmouth University in Cornwall from Tuesday 8 to Thursday 10 July.
As well as a stimulating range of peer-led sessions and workshops the event will include a field trip to galleries and artist-led venues such as Tate St Ives and Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange.
This is an exciting opportunity to take part in in-depth discussion, meet colleagues from across the UK and around the World; potentially present or lead a session to develop your own research/practice; and to find out about arts and education programmes in Cornwall and the South West.
The cost of attending starts at £275 for non-members of engage, £200 for Organisational members and £150 for Personal members. Low-cost accommodation is available at Falmouth University.
