Creative Connections Residency Whitechapel Gallery

Creative Connections Residency Whitechapel Gallery    2005

Creative Connections was a one year Artist Residency at Bethnal Green Technology College and the Whitechapel Gallery. The residency stimulated fresh approaches to teaching, learning and engaging with contemporary art in schools, whilst encouraging an increased awareness of the role of contemporary artists within society. The project encouraged the use of the gallery as a resource for teaching and aimed to facilitate a shift in thinking and practice amongst teachers, engaging them in more critical and discursive pedagogies. It commissioned artists to make new work. 1 x 1 = 1 was created at the college in collaboration with GCSE drama students.
