Education has always been one of the cornerstones of Street Level Photoworks. Work in this area is broad and inclusive, embracing work with community groups, artist's collaborations in urban and rural settings, projects for schools and with agencies working across areas of inclusion, social justice and equalities.
We create opportunities for diverse members of the public to engage in creative opportunities, regardless of cultural or social background. We also create dynamic opportunities for artists to collaborate with communities/ groups/ individuals. The education programme consists of: gallery talks and debates; gallery tours and activities for schools and colleges; community based programmes with diverse groups; online resources for teachers; skills based training for the general public and professional development for young artists and photographers.
