Adam Walker Temple Mount 2013

Art & SEND Study Day 2013

This study day is embedded within a wider offer of resources, events and courses for teachers working within special educational needs (SEN) settings. Tate is committed to developing opportunities for SEN teachers and their groups to fully and regularly engage with the art on display at both Tate Britain and Tate Modern.

Drawing on his experience of leading SEN workshops at Tate and developing themes from his practice, artist Adam J.B. Walker leads the day. Looking at ideas of collaboration, colonisation and occupation, adaptation and habitat, and performance in relation to working with young people with special educational needs, the session creatively challenges preconceptions about the nature and potential of engagement in art by young people with special educational needs.

For teachers and staff working with students with (SEN), students from Pupil Referral Units (PRU) and students with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD).

Schools booking two study days will receive a third free place to attend a session for any member of staff.
