Twilight teacher development events at Tate Britain - booking now open

Across the year, through learning resources, photography sessions and workshops, the Tate Year 3 Project has provided rich opportunities for London’s primary schools to explore creativity in the classroom and the themes at the heart of the work - inclusion, identity and belonging.

The project now invites teachers to book for two free twilight teacher development events at Tate Britain, taking place after half term. Both events offer inspirational insight to fuel practice in the classroom and are a great opportunity to meet others and experience exclusive access to the gallery.

Join Steve Moffitt, CEO of A New Direction, in conversation with Professor Bill Lucas, author of Teaching Creativity and authority on all things creative learning, and Andria Zafirakou, winner of the Global Teacher of the Year 2018.
