Artsmark Connects: Embedding student voice within schools

Two smiling women and a man sitting on red theatre-style seatsDate: Friday, 28 February
Time: 16:30 - 18:30
Location: London Transport Museum

Join us for an evening of networking and exploration and reflect on the importance of embedding student voice within schools – the advantages, practicalities and challenges of doing this. Find out more about how London Transport Museum is working with teachers, taking inspiration from their collection, to promote investigation and innovation and to support classroom learning.

At this Artsmark Connect event, you can:

  • Presentations: meet Hannah Peaty of Soho Parish Primary school and find out about their Artsmark journey journey that led to the formation of a student council to promote student voice within the school
  • Celebrate: congratulate those schools that have recently been awarded Artsmark
  • Discover: hear how museum partnerships can support you on your Artsmark journey and discover different ways to promote pupil led investigation
  • Network: a chance for teachers and the cultural sector to network and share ideas/practice

The first 25 teachers to book will also get free access to our Museum Late, Night on the Tiles, where you can party like it’s 1999 and you’re dancing in a disused Underground station.

Teachers, senior leaders and governors are welcome to attend, as are members of the cultural sector. Places are limited, book now!
