This peer-led event represents an opportunity for mid-career or senior colleagues to work together to:

- Reflect on aspects of current practice in gallery and museum education

- Review current research and political agendas

- Consider the positioning of gallery and museum education within the visual arts

- Learn about international contexts for gallery and museum education

- Network with UK and international colleagues


The Summer School programme will focus on the theme of resilience and leadership in gallery and museum education and the visual arts sector. Delegates will lead or participate in peer-led sessions; visit galleries, museums and heritage venues in Padua, meet colleagues and hear about gallery education practice from across Europe, particularly Italy. One day of the four-day Summer School will be spent attending the 55th Venice Biennale.
