Education at Chisenhale Gallery enables greater access to contemporary art by extending and developing new audiences. All projects position the gallery as a local resource where people are provided with opportunities to engage with contemporary art through the agency of artists. Built around individual projects is a network of community advocates and partnership organisations that support the local community in visiting the gallery.
The programme supports and sustains the development of artists’ practice by offering opportunities for a wide range of practitioners to devise projects that take both the exhibitions programme and their own practice as the starting point for participants’ engagement.
Programme strands include: Propeller
, a forum for young people aged 15-20, artist-led workshops, family days, coffee mornings and teachers’ previews on site at the gallery.
