How might we create a photography classroom over two days at Tate? Drop in to encounter continued professional development in action as the focus between student, teacher and artist is playfully blurred and a photography classroom is exposed like never before. You are invited to observe professional development in action in our pop-up classroom.

This CPD event sees teachers debating the important issues in photography, developing their own practice and collaborating on the production of new ideas, and embracing a spirit of experimentation and play. This event is organised by the PhotoPedagogy network and includes contributions from visiting practitioners and experts including The Photographers’ Gallery and Autograph ABP.

Information for teachers interested in participating in the full programme can be found on the PhotoPedagogy website.

Take a look at some reflections on PhotoPedagogy at Tate Exchange here on the blog.

This event is programmed by Thomas Tallis School, a Tate Exchange Associate.
