Tate Summer School for Teachers 2016

We are delighted to announce that Summer School 2016 will be led by artists Anna Lucas and Alex Schady.


Drawing upon structures and systems stemming from performance and lens based media that inform their teaching at university level (Central St Martins, De Montfort University and the Royal College of Art), Alex and Anna propose a series of interconnected modules and pop-up activities. In turn participants are invited to attend, move between, build, re-invent and develop ideas relating to live interventions, moving image, photography and new technologies. 

What happens when a photograph meets a sculpture or when painting looks at video? How might we look at the world differently when 2D, 3D and 4D collide? 

For the workshops they will be working with individual and group activities and introducing a wide range of techniques both digital and analogue.

Rethinking customary educational frameworks and situations, participants and artists move between the roles, forms and ideas of both teacher and student to imagine new and exciting ways of supporting engagement with art once back in the classroom.

This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in art and ideas over the course of a full week and in the extraordinary new spaces at Tate Modern. The opportunity to be a part of an active, participatory and practical conversation contributing to broader ideas around art, education and the twenty first century museum.

  1 make a simple geometric for and introduce yourself.
