Engage London Area Group meeting: International Perspectives


Tuesday 14 November, 6 – 8pm
October Gallery, 24 Old Gloucester Street, Bloomsbury, London, WC1N 3AL

International Perspectives

Engage members and regional colleagues are invited to join London Reps for an Area Group Meeting exploring International Perspectives at October Gallery. 

In collaboration with the Winston Churchill Fellowship, this session will hear from a variety of fellows discussing contemporary best practice exploring innovative learning practices in and outside of the gallery setting.

Visiting countries all over the World from Germany, the Netherlands and throughout the USA, fellows will present their research ranging from how to engaging diverse audiences, new approaches to museums, to asking the bigger questions – do museums matter? London rep Daryl Wells will also share her work in integrating restorative justice principles with art education in the USA.

The evening will finish with an interactive element where participants can join in with discussion and debate and their will also be an opportunity to see October Gallery’s latest exhibition, Nnenna Okore’s Ụkwa Ruo Oge Ya Ọ Daa – There’s a Time for Everything.

The Churchill Travelling Fellowship gives people the opportunity to maximise what they can achieve in their lifetime, both as leaders and role models to inspire others, but also in personal development terms.
