Summer School 2019

Join us to consider broad ideas around art, education and the twenty first century museum in this week long course for teachers and artists

Led by artists Yemi Awosile and India Harvey, Summer School 2019 will take the Olafur Eliasson exhibition as its starting point. In 2003, The Weather Project – a glowing sun visible through fog, resonated with hundreds of thousands of visitors. In 2019 he will return to create immersive installations across the building and surrounding landscape. Using a variety of exciting approaches to making and thinking the school will introduce ideas and strategies for learning with art. Affording possibilities for and beyond the classroom you will be invited to think about your teaching practice in an expanded sense.​

Summer School 2019 is an immersive course exploring learning through making. Contribute to an evolving, experiential and participatory conversation around new approaches to teaching and learning in the classroom over a full week at Tate Modern.

Summer School is framed by an artist’s practice where it intersects with teaching and connects to Tate’s collection and exhibitions. Each year the course programme explores the possibilities for using Tate as an exceptional resource for teachers. Summer School attracts an exciting group of teachers and artists from around the world to create a dynamic and memorable learning experience.

We greatly value the opportunity to work with a diverse group of colleagues at Summer School, including those visiting internationally. Conversation and discussion play an integral role in all Tate courses and so to ensure your enjoyment and maximise your experience it is essential that you are able to use and understand English well.

Please do get in touch via schoolsandteachers@tate.org.uk if you have any queries regarding this.
