Activism in the gallery

Welcome to Sharing Practice

With c.800 members in the UK and around the world, the Engage team is lucky to be in regular contact with colleagues working in gallery and visual arts education who are leading the way with fascinating and diverse practice in a great variety of areas.

In order to share this learning with the wider sector, and promote our members’ work, we have invited members to present examples of their practice that fit within a set theme. These case studies are available to both members and non-members alike.

In April 2019, members were invited to respond to the theme ‘Activism in the gallery’, to tie in with the launch of Engage 42: Ethics and Activism. Issue 42 of the Engage Journal proposes practical ways for galleries and museums to consider the issues of ethics and activism, along with discussions about particular artist projects and exhibitions.
