Watch this Space: Gallery and teacher partnership case studies


Watch this Space (2004–2011) was a funded professional development programme for galleries, teachers, artists and gallery educators in England. It enabled them to gain first-hand experience of each other’s work to initiate, build and sustain relationships that introduced school students to contemporary art in galleries and offered professional development for teachers, gallery educators and artists.
