Artist-in-Residence workshops 2016 - 2017

A series of workshops for students and teachers, encouraging fresh perspectives on art

Workshops will take place in the gallery, where students can encounter artwork alongside their teachers and artists. Through sharing thoughts and ideas they can create a unique and diverse learning context designed to encourage individuals to engage with art and contemporary culture.

We take a radical approach to engagement, inviting students to learn about art through being in a conversation with each other, artists and artworks within the particular context of the public gallery space.

Each conversation, framed as it is through art and practice, will be different and unpredictable but always designed to encourage individuals to ask questions and form opinions.

Our 2016–17 workshops are led by: Travis Alabanza, James Leadbitter (AKA the vacuum cleaner), Gal Leshem and Zinzi Minott.

For each event in this series

  • There are two workshops in each time slot per day (strict maximum of 16 students per group)
  • Timeslots are 10.30–12.00 and 13.00–14.30
  • Each school can book up to two workshops per term
  • Groups must sign in at the gallery’s Schools Desk 20 minutes before the start time.

Supported by Lionel Barber, the Stanley Picker Trust and Gilberto Pozzi.
