Date and time: 9 October 2019, 5-7pm
Location: Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London, E3 2SJ
Cost: Free 


This informal networking evening coincides with the launch of the Poplar Partnership - 5 years of Artists in Schools publication a collaboration between Bow Arts and several Poplar schools. The publication outlines 5 years of the Poplar Consortium partnership - a programme delivered by Bow Arts that supports schools to enhance their arts education offer through bespoke, artist-led projects, accredited programmes and creative professional development. ​

The event will give teachers a chance to network with peers and discover more about artist partnerships and the value of creative learning across both the core and foundation curriculum. As well as having exclusive access to the Bow Open exhibition at the Nunnery Gallery, you will receive a copy of the publication.

Artsmark Connects events provide the following opportunities:

  • Presentations: hear from Advocate schools that took part in the Poplar Partnership and from the Education team at Bow Arts about the value of collaboration and creative learning

  • CPD: try out some art-making activities from Nunnery Gallery, an Artsmark Partner, that you can take back to the classroom

  • Celebrate: congratulate those schools that have recently been awarded Artsmark and celebrate how they achieved this

  • Discover: an opportunity for schools and cultural organisations to find out how Artsmark can help them

  • Network: a chance for teachers and the cultural sector to network and share ideas/practice over a glass of wine

Teachers, senior leaders and governors are welcome to attend.
