- Venue: Tate Liverpool
- Audience: schools in the Merseyside area
About the programme
Since 2008, Tate Liverpool has worked closely with Liverpool Childrens Services, Liverpool Education Authority and local childrens centres and schools examining issues faced by Early Years and primary and secondary school teachers, parents, carers and their children, and explored a range of approaches to address them.
All About Me was created to address difficulties arising during transition stages from Early Years education to primary, and from primary to secondary school, while promoting healthy relationships within the family, at home, in school and within the larger community.
All About Me offers creative uses of the Tate collection artworks as starting points for learning and healthy relationship fostering, while also introducing participants and teachers to a range of artistic practices, expanding perceptions of what art can be and how productive and fun it can be to create collaborative art works.
Designed to run over the course of one half term, the project includes an InSET for all school staff, outreach workshops for parents/carers and separate workshops for school children, in-gallery workshops at Tate Liverpool and culminates in an exciting celebration and group exhibition of work produced during the project, with a private view for the schools and families involved, with a week or more of public viewing at Tate Liverpool.
