Regional networks

Engage provides a platform for education professionals working within galleries, museums, heritage venues, schools and other community venues, to meet and connect through Area Group meetings.

These meetings are convened across the nine regions in England, and Wales. Meetings are programmed by Area Group Representatives, who work across the UK to:

  • Support Engage members in their area
  • Help to shape Engage’s work nationally
  • Build Engage’s external networks
  • Act as advocates for gallery education

Area Group meetings are free of charge to Engage members, and members from any region are invited to attend. Meetings often include a practical workshop, or presentations on research or case studies from within or outside the sector which might help develop your work.

Non-members are welcome to attend one ‘taster’ meeting for £5 before joining. If you join, the cost of the meeting will be deducted from your Membership fee.



Engage membership allows me to raise my awareness of the sector, share ideas with other organisations and hear about events. I love the community feel of my local area’s members
